Some relief from the endless white banana peel today as I trekked up the first half of Rats Castle on open terrain and dry scree! The snow again appeared at the top, but was relatively short lived. Views of yingina/Great Lake were awesome, but time was cut short as the wind truly made itself known, whoopa! I have no idea how I managed to hang on to the trig on the summit there at one point… I quickly returned to the Jeep to get moving into the Western Plateau once more.
