A short walk using the old road to the Geodetic Observatory above the Orroral Valley. Grand views. We’ll then head north-west, at first using the track that winds along the ridge. We’ll continue off track through Lunar Laser Rocks (see photo) and Haggis Rocks, so named in the rock-climbing book ACT Granite. They are magnificent tors. A little scrambling. A steep descent down the spur to the bend in James Creek. Around 10km and 400vm climb. An early start and home for lunch. It's nearly Christmas – wear a Christmas decoration! A combined walk with NPA.
