Notes: The first day of a 2-day weekend with Matt Hillplodder, booked well in advance and the weather played ball. A short drizzly shower on the ascent of Smatcher but then clear skies, getting warmer as the afternoon progressed. A lack of running water was a constant worry and ended up filtering some awful brown, murky water from the pool beside our camp for the evening. Warm night, eventually driven into tents by the tiny midges.
