This was a solo walk out from Katoomba to Castle Head on Narrow Neck. I camped very close to the head, to try and photograph the dusk and dawn. Lighting and atmospheric conditions were not very great but it is a spectacular and beautiful place with great views of Mt Solitary, The Jamison Valley and Cedar Creek. Its a place I will return to.

I walked back via the Golden Stairs, Federal Pass, Leura Forest, Leura Cascades and then to Leura station.
