I can’t remember a lot about this day a month ago, except that it was very windy and the clouds were rolling across the mountain bringing occasional showers and rainbows. I followed one of the few sets of cairns to this spot and wondered where they all go. One of them leads to Ironstone and I’m pretty sure one tracks west to Whiteleys Hut but I’m not certain where the eastern cairns head. Mother Cummings perhaps. Anyway, one day we’ll be able to camp overnight and find out. This was as far as I got that day.

At 1,444m Mount Ironstone is the highest peak in the Great Western Tiers.
