Melrose to Alligator Gorge Road (Saturday)
Alligator Gorge Road to Horrocks Pass (Sunday)
Northern Guidebook, Maps 3.1 to 3.5
Hilary piked out of this hike when End-to-End 2 came through, so she needed to catch up on this difficult hike (I did it with End-to-End 2 last August). So she gathered together some friends and somehow convinced me to join as a guide. A spectacular walk, so it wasn't a particularly difficult effort to convince me to join. Hilary's friends - of course - were hilarious. And somehow in the midst of all the hiking and laughter I think we might have convinced three or four of them to join in with the End-to-End 4 group that will start the Heysen Trail from Cape Jervis next year. I say convinced, but I think perhaps it was a case of them just catching the bug.
