Leaving late Friday afternoon/early evening for car camp above or below Thredbo, then either up from Dead Horse Gap  OR onto the Chairlift on Saturday morning to a spot near North Ramshead  setting camp, then a day walk to South Ramhead via Lake Cootabatamba and return via Mt Ramshead ( the middle one). So far so good.

Sunday will be another day walk to or towards Mount Townsend OR simply Rawsons Pass, Seaman’s Hut then retrace steps to the camp and either back down the chairlift or return to Dead Horse Gap, wherever the cars be. Maximum of six participants. Will undoubtedly be cold and obviously the walking will not be strenuous but if the weather is tricky………… I will need a pre walk gear inspection  and briefing for those not familiar with Alpine walking. A possible bad weather alternative is the Chimneys, and Teddies runins
