Neika Cliffs

 Tuesday 16 April 2024

Because it was drizzly on top of kunanyi we stayed low instead of going to Thark Ridge.  From the Springs the walk used Reids Track to the Pipeline Track and once near the cliffs, which I refer to as Neika Cliffs, we ascended the steep slope.   Once there we walked along the eastern facing cliffs then explored the northern side, which extended much further.

At the end of the eastern side some ascended to the top and although ribbons were noticed we didn’t follow them.   On rereading the climber's website it did lead on to another cliff line and another above that.
