Towards the end of the second week, most of the leaders and the
scouts were given a rest day to recover before the overnight glacier hike.
But three of the hardier members of 3rd Gidea Park and Dave's mate Ross had other ideas.
We soon discovered that we could get half way up by using the chair
lift. Well we were supposed to be resting!
The weather on this day was pants! absolutely pants! But
it gave us a chance to hike in less than perfect summer conditions.
Occasionally the rain would stop, the clouds would part and we
would over heat. Then the downpour would start again. Initially
we just plodded on regardless.
However the persistent precipitation didn't make life easier.
