Day 4 of the six day course this is Michael Townsend's journal for that day July 8, 1998.
Day 4. Did Mount Rhonda today trekking in just exceptional conditions. I exchanged my foot wear for my own boots. Amazing difference!! They stayed dry for about 2 hours of the 8 hour trip but wet feet were much easier to cope with than shins that felt like they were caving in. The weather was perfect. The sun shone for 7 of the 8 hours with the 8th hour bringing rain, sleet and high winds. We got out on the glacier, oriented ourselves
with the map and compass and set off for Mount Rhonda.
