With temperatures in the mid-twenties celsius, light winds, and clear skies, the conditions were perfect. I decided not to use the car, and walked to the Cougar Creek trailhead leading to the Lady Macdonald trail. Most of this scramble is a hike. The trail is in excellent condition up to the helipad. A worthwhile destination in itself, the helipad was full of sunbathers today. Above the pad, the route is well-defined until the false summit. The final section between the false and true summits is where the scramble gets its ‘difficult’ rating however. This knife edge ridge isn’t long, but there are considerable drops on either side. It adds a good amount of exhilaration to the trip, and makes lunch on the helipad taste better.
