It was 2011 when last I did this walk, a lot has changed since then. I now live in Perth and attempting now to pick up the trail and get walking again despite covid still being around. There was one car in the car park when I arrived at 10am and there were 6 when I got back. I saw a few of those folk as I walked as I waited for the cloud to clear and the sun to shine again near the top to get decent photos. The path is good nearly all the way up now, just a bit boggy to get to the cairn. Steep drop back down. Seems a long way back to car park as usual with circuits. Good to get started though. Here's to many more.
