Revenge of Cass Lagoon Saddle


Third time around, the last good training oppourtunity before Alice Springs and some excellent winter weather was forecast! Georgia, Sarah and I headed up towards Arthurs Pass on a frosty morning to do the Cass Lagoon Saddle loop. It was amazing weather up there, very cold and frosty which made the rocks a bit slippery. We managed to stay on the track most of the way this time too! Hamilton Hut was once again a brilliant place for a quick lunch break.

After the slog up the hill to the Cass Saddle I took off with the aim of running to the end and shuttling the car back before the others arrived. Last time I was pretty unlucky hitching a ride around, but having already paid the favour forward in the morning, first car was the first car that stopped! Great, timing as it allowed me to get back just as Sarah and Georgia finished. Another awesome day out in the hills!
