Another great job by the Friends.

The Tank and shelter sit just below the peak (and trig point) at Mt Cone. On the day I hiked through, (early May 2012) there was quite a wind and the site was well protected. Tank was above 20% full.

The lower step on the stile over the fence has been removed or fallen off though.

That stile is new, the lower step should be OK. I don't suppose you have a picture

Hi Julian,

No picture, sorry. The step is still there on the ground with the nails poking out of it, if I had a hammer I would have re-installed it.

Cheers,

Michael

Sounds like someone didn't like it being there.
I will report this to our Maintenance group
Thanks

I liked this camp site. It was really quiet and well protected from wind. You can see Victor Harbor from this spot and the ground is reasonably flat.
