East End Of Rundle
From the parking lot Entering the forest Looking at the three summits
(1) We parked just before going downhill to Goat Creek Picnic Area. The trailhead here is just beside this powerline.
This mountain is supposedly one of the most popular scramble... we still managed to lose the trail and ended up on the "Climber's Route".
Approaching the rockband On the cliff edge Having lunch on summit
(1) After a bit of bushwacking we found the trail. At the treeline, we hiked directly towards the rockband seen here.
On the second summit On the snowy summit Leaving the East End Of Rundle
(1) There were a lot of snow/ice on the way up. The weatherman promised sunshine today but we didn't catch a break. Here's Alex on the second summit looking for the register.
(2) From the second summit, we scrambled down and up to the first summit for a lunch break. Still no sun... still no register.
(3) On our descend, we simply followed the left ridge. The sun then started shining. All we could do was sigh, so we stopped at a cliff and enjoyed the view there.
This scramble took us 2:30hrs to both peaks and 1hr down.
