Walk for Sunday, March 11th 2018

Hi everyone.
Nannette is leading a walk and swim-through Ellery Big Hole this Sunday, March 11th. The forecast maximum temperature is an ideal walking and swimming range  29-30° C, but check the weather Saturday for a more accurate forecast.
Grade: Easy – Moderate. Approximately 8 Km total walking on a marked trail  and a 200 m swim/float.
From Ellery carpark, an initial 4 Km walk east and gentle ascent to a low saddle along section 6 of the Larapinta Trail, then down to meet a vehicle track, then approx 4 Km west to the northern side of Ellery waterhole, followed by a 200-m swim or float through the waterhole.
If you don’t have the capacity to swim 200m, bring a flotation vest or mattress.
Bring a water-resistant stuff sac to hold your water-sensitive gear (or consider leaving them behind in the vehicles) and a pack cover to float your pack through the waterhole.
Discuss with Nannette.
