This walk was organised by Helen for SUBW. Party - Helen, Chantal, Pete, Helena, Kosta, Max, Dave

Above - it was raining (all day!) - so we headed up to the western end of Donkey Mountain and sheltered in this cave for a while, then did a side trip to the Western Tower

Above - this pinnacle is the true summit - probably unclimbed?

Above - we camped in this large and sheltered chamber closer to the eastern end of the Main Block

Above - very delicate rock formations. You need to be very careful walking in this fragile country!
