Party - Tom Williams, Eric Williams, Gordon Thompson (The General), Adrian Stanborough, Dave Noble and others from SBC

We had planned to walk from near Bell to the Putty Rd - but this proved to be too ambitious for an exploratory walk in 4 days. We got as far as Black Cliff Ck - found the going slow - and headed back to the Natural Bridge on the Mt Cameron Track - then walked a fair way to Bell from there before gatting a lift.
