3. Oh, missed that: 'for experienced scree bashers and route-finders only'

Layers, snacks and drinks took precedence at the pass (5 km from the Big Elbow trail junction). Piper Pass was named in honour of Norma Piper, an #opera #singer who married local #legend George Pocaterra in the 1930s.

Looking over the other side towards the small tarn that was our original #destination for the evening, I almost gasped at the faint #trail – I swear made by the shaggy #sheep that was looking up curiously at us. 

Had I been paying closer attention earlier, I might have heard “cliffs and vertiginous scree slopes” and “for experienced scree bashers and route-finders only.”
