Twas' just before Christmas... 22nd-23rd of December 2018 and I needed a last quick trip in the hills, before heading home for the holiday. And Helen's friends had made it south already for the holidays, so we headed up to make an attempt on Mt Alexander. Although the weather has other ideas, so we settled for a spot of remote bouldering and thigh admiration. Before heading back to the Hut for an afternoon of wood chopping and enjoying the bush bath!

Hopefully improving on the water photography front
