Anyone been to cosmic county since November. Are we climbing there again or is it still of limits.

Heaps of climbers at the freezer last weekend, and Cosmic looked mostly unburnt. I'd say go for it. Just don't walk via the buddist retreat unless you want to get shot.

Mostly unburnt, Buddhist retreat, getting shot. Sounds like downtown Bangkok.

There is a new "route" which has been negotatiated with the 2 landowners whose private property we had previously been crossing (via the rail corridor).

At the usual carpark, rather than going down the bitumen road past the gate, walk a few metres East of the road (still within in the carpark) and spot the White/Red marking tape (and the white reflectors) and follow the trail down to the usual road near the big tree, then continue as usual.

We checked it out on Monday, and though it still hasn't "worn in" yet, it's a pretty cruisy meander down to the big tree, especially with a lot of the "wall of tree" vegetation gone because of the fires.

Regards,

-Paul

Do you think most of these would have walked in the correct way? Just wondering if the message is sinking in.

We all walked OUT via the new track - but most of us had a few problems locating it on the way down and ended up just bush bashing downhill. That's why we wrote up this better description!

If you are at the crag just mention the new track to anyone you don't know. That's what I do.
