Party - Stu, Enmoore, Rob, Wendy, Martin, Steffy, Digi Dave, John, Chuin Nee, Sarah, Rik, Zen, Dave N

This was the first time any of the party had been up on Donkey Mountain in the Wolgan Valley. It was a fantastic place - and we all had a good time exploring, scrambling and enjoying fantastic views. There is a lot of things worth seeing in such a compact location. We also had some really first class food - thanks to everyone and some excellent wines to enjoy.....

Thanks to Tom Williams and Albert Chetcuti for some advice on the mountain.

The photos have been spread out on three pages. The other pages can be found here and here

Above - Ah! That is why Martin did not climb onto the higher pagoda - its a bit far to jump out to.

Above - Scrambling

Above - We spot a nice sheltered place to camp - if only we can find a way down to it.
