Date walked: 07/06/2021

Time taken: 7 hours

Distance: 22km

Ascent: 1034m

There was a fair bit of peching going on in the heat but an amazing 14 mile round of the 10 Donalds (4 Donalds and 6 Donald tops) around Games Hope from Talla Reservoir. Erie Hill was a magical exposed spot (as the name might suggest!) and another view of Carrifran Wildwood were the highlights.
