Another splendid 3 days in the Wild Dog Mountains to attend the Dawn Service at Splendour Rock. This time we did it a little different and went Carlons Farm > Black Horse Ridge > Mobbs Swamp > Mount Dingo > Splendour Rock > Wombat Parade (on the east side of Mt Warrigal) > Medlow Gap > Carlons Farm.
What a fabulous four days we had! Our plans got switched around at the last minute, which meant we could leave Wednesday night rather than Friday noon, so quickly after a quick run around we had everything sorted at set off, with a quick stop in at Katoomba to drop off the trip intention form & pick up an EPIRB and get some delicious pizza from Rene Pizza Place. We didn’t end up reaching Green Gully until 10!
The walk down breakfast creek went quite well, despite the stinging nettles (we were prepared with long pants and gaiters, but they had grown allot since I was there last!). We eventually got into bed around 12:30am, took a little longer than we had planned and we missed the bottom of Black Horse Ridge which set us back about 15 minutes.
