Day 2:

Lake Harris still had an ice coating, but no-one volunteered to walk on water or have a dip. Beyond the saddle is an emergency shelter with great views over the Hollyford Valley to the Darron Mountains. Some had enough energy to whip up the nearby Conical Hill, those nursing injuries thought better of it.

After an initial drop, it is fairly easy going with breathtaking views, then one swings back to descend to the picturesque Lake MacKenzie and Hut. The lake with views up to Emily Hut is famous for its photogenicity, given the right weather.
