In true "Lifestyle" fashion we rose late and made coffee and oatmeal before packing up camp and heading to the boat ramp. From here we would see across the Lake and up into Cleo's Bath and our run for the next day. Now there is another far easier hike in from the ridge but word from the ranger was that it was closed hence this angle of attack.

pro-fessionals? Are you sponsored? Because I know a guy who did it and all I know is if you don't have a Red Bull helmet and a helicopter you shouldn't be going there". And so it began... we chuckled to each other as we thanked the kind man for his input and headed across the lake to the river. The first part of the hike was easy but soon we were at Cleo's Bath and it was steep and up hill from here.
