    Gonna chuck this in the B/C thread also but giving though to hiking Mt McKay in Saturday afternoon for a couple of laps and wondering if anyone else is interested or has plans to head out there that I might be able tag along with. My usual riding buddies aren't around this weekend so I'd rather no go by myself.
    Got gear, very much a noob from an experience point of view though.

    Just be aware that there has been fresh snow and some really significant winds so there will be some funky loading on different aspects....contact Patrol for advice before heading out.

    Yeah thinking about that today. Southerly wind will have made things pretty funky I reckon.
    Cheers

    yes.
    Glad I did in the end.
    Anything exposed was like coral reef. Wind packed and pretty gnarly.
    Will wait for the lads to be available for before heading out back again.
