The Budawangs is home to some of the best Bushwalking in NSW. This particular Bushwalk from West to East or vice-versa is a Mega-classic offering humungously diverse and spectacular scenery and bushwalking. It is home to iconic features like The Castle, Monolith Valley, Seven Gods Pinnacles, Corang Arch, Burrumbeet Brook and more.
The level of interest amongst the boys was excellent with 16 boys in total. This meant that we could embark on the ideal trip by splitting the party into two, starting at opposite ends of the Bushwalk thereby visiting all the best bits without any backtracking.
After a ridiculous amount of pfaffing around with car hire and other logistical problems, we finally headed off on Friday afternoon to our campsite for the night at Bendeela in the Kangaroo Valley.
A challenging bushwalk in the Kanangra region. Originally I had planned to do a three day walk from Kanangra to Katoomba for the Silver Qualifying Walk but alas the logistics of the car shuffle proved to be too complex so I settled for a three day circuit starting at Kanangra Walls, down the Gingra Ridge to the Kowmung River, up to 100 Man Cave via Compagnoni Pass and the Ti Willa Plateau
I can't quite remember how this all got started, I think I suggested to Anton that he might be able to organise his own DoE walk and soon enough Jason asked Anton if I could organise a Six Foot Track walk. After I had a look at the Six Foot Track walk, I decided that it looked pretty boring as the bulk of it is along firetrail which I generally dislike. It's OK in small doses, but I much prefer less travelled routes in wilderness areas.
