On the second day we will climb Mt Twynam, then continue along to the end of
the Watsons Crag ridge. Although a bit hilly, it is fairly easy off-track walking through
grassland and herbfields. Hopefully the wildflowers will be in full display. There are superb
views to the distant North, West and South to be had. Return to Guthega will follow the
same route taken on the first day.

please come prepared
