Hi. "Happy new year first of all " as Jimi Hendrix said on the "Band of Gypsies" live album. Your correspondent in the field went out and walked this route just recently with two other bushwalkers from the VNPA. Upper Jamieson River/Clear Creek Track/ Mt. Clear Track/Mt. Clear/Chester's Yard/King Billie No.1 and No. 2 /Mt. Magdala/Hell's Window/Picture Point/Lovick's Hut/Mt.Lovick/Bluff Hut/ The Bluff summit/ Refrigerator Gap/ Refrigerator Gap track/ Brock's road/ Finish. We covered 60 kms over 4 days of actual hiking and three different campsites. On day one we met at Sheep yard flat and piled into the Tee Mobile. I took the Tee Mobile up to The Bluff hut to retrieve an unused BC XC ski trip food and fuel drop and to check the water tank level. The water tank at the Bluff hut was nearly full and my food and fuel drop was still there and had not been disturbed so we drove onto our campsite in the Upper Jamieson river area .The roads up there are rather rough. I can say that us hikers and XC skiers cast a slimmer shadow in the summer sun than many 4 x4 enthusiasts do. Here are some photos of the pre hike visit to the Bluff Hut. The Huts and the campsites that are drive in campsites such as Sheep yard flat are best avoided by bushwalkers during peak periods such as the Xmas /New year holiday period.
