Set off on foot up the Old Buxton Road from Macc. This road and the Cat and Fiddle Road was closed to traffic. At Walker Barn conditions were poor with deep drifts and blowing snow. A paramedic in a 4wd suggested turning back. Decided to push on a few hundred metres more to see what conditions were like. See video for an impression of the scene:
At this point I decided that further progress was unlikely and took the paramedic’s advice.
Decended via a different route encountering snow drifts around 2m deep in places. Hard going but strangely enjoyable.
SP-004 is proving tricky in these conditions.
