-The night was spent on Yadboro Flats and at 4 o'clock while trying to catch a wink, we were rudely awoken by a horn and a thud issued by the secretary and the now membership secretary, who were just making sure everyone was comfortable. That an example to prospectives. No wonder only 18% become members! +
-The cars were left 3 miles past Yadboro Flats the following morning and we followed the road 'til Kalianna Ridge. The track was very indistinct and the party became disjointed and scattered over several miles on the west side of the castle. Two of the more experienced walkers (again the secretary and Membership secretary) took a wrong turning and were mislaid for 3 - 4 hours, another striking example to prospectives. The track to the castle lead us through a fantostic natural tunnel through the mountains. Immediately after the tunnel, poised on two rocks the party came to a halt for lunch, although not an ideal place, there being no water and only a fire suitable for dwarfs. If you are a slow eater, your lunch will be considerably reduced before you have time to realize that several people are kindly helping demolish your food. I've learnt by experience. +
-The packs were left here and everybody raced literary to the summit. The view from the far end was spectacular dappled with small patches of sunlight, since the weather was mostly overcast. The sea could-bo seen in the distance to the east. The view was worth the climb. A great feeling of pleasure and satisfaction is felt when signing the book on top. The S.B.r.'s, on looking in the book, have had many walks thBre. The descent down was even more uncontrolled, half running, sliding and falling but no casualties occurred. 'e collected our packs and the two missing walkers, who had circled the castle several times (great sense of direction). Through a boulder filled gully half a mile along the track, We entered the valley of the monoliths. +
-The geological formations were, to say the least, unusual, rising on either side ofanarraw valley. Anther term introduced to me on this walk, is "aim Doodle" - a small monolith. There is one to the right of the valley of the monoliths, rhich I climbed quite easily, but not thinking how to get down, which is a completely different matter than climbing up.+
  
-The white-anters were debating where to go but sudden burst of rain halted their Diana, and a quick dash was made to the fantastic camping cave under Mt. Fletcher.
