Above - Our objective was to traverse on the ledge to the headland and then hopefully descend to Megalong.

Above - Looking back along the ledge we had traversed.

Above - We continue out to the point. At one stage we pass a rope hanging down from a higher level - probably a pass up through the cliffs.

Above - looking back

Above - Near the headland. We descended a little further along - very close to the nose. The ledge did not continue around the corner.

Above - Below the headland, we find two depressions - that look like they were once shale mine adits. Further down we came across this sloping pathway. The side had been built up with rocks - so it was man made. This was a fair way above the tramway level.
