Our ledge runs out and we backtrack below it

Looking across to Megalong Head
Smiffy having a higher faith in the grippy qualities of loose claystone than most

Sue, Rebecca, Jason and Smiffy on the ledge below the chains
Rebecca looking positively happy on the chains...
...while Jason contemplates his next step.
Ruslan also enjoying things...
... as is Evelyn.
And so is Smiffy. This is supposed to be hair-raising, peoples, not fun!
Just as we get to the top we start hearing thunder in the distance. Better now than earlier!
We take a quick detour out to the trig for a few more views before the walk back to the cars.
