Day off. 20/03/18. Sugar Loaf Reserve, Ports Hill, 1620 ft above sea level
This mountaineering lark is a doddle. We climbed it in no time at all. No need for any safety equipment or oxygen either. Even Simon tackled the north face wearing nothing but a pair of sturdy flip flops and sensible shorts.
We met Dennis the elusive ‘Man Of The Mountain’ who told us his amazing story about life on the hill and how he climbed it as a child and integrated himself with the wildlife. Frankly, I thought he was talking shit and told him so.
That is all.
