And the weather doesn't look too bad at all!
Heading up Black Birch Creek.
Some of the walking is quite pretty.
There are plenty of crossings up this creek!
A ruin beside the creek.
The water seems to get bigger as we get higher.
Some packs off scrambling.
We're almost canyoning!
Jeff finds a dry way up the waterfall.
Through a small hole on the right.
Second lunch at Dog Kennel Biv.
The creek widens out.
The high peaks of the Black Mountain Range can be seen behind.
We camp on the last grassy knoll before the valley turns to scree.
We still have to walk downhill 200m for water.

Overnight the weather closes in.
There are no thoughts of climbing anything this morning.

All rugged up.
A relaxed breakfast in the snow.
We're off with plans to traverse back along the Black Mountain Range from Inkerman Saddle.
Scrub bashing as we traverse around to Inkerman Saddle.
A map check in limited visibility.
Climbing up to point 1746.
An early lunch on the top.
We decide there's no point traversing the range any further.
