Moderate Scramble - Mt Edith

Details

Some of us will be doing this scramble hungover on a couple hours of sleep after celebrating Hung's house warming party the night before, a great way to detox the body. But Peter wants to bag more peaks this summer and i dare most of you to keep up to my hungover ass, scramble on!

A good level of fitness is required as our pace is moderate-fast. Please be realistic about your abilities. You must be able to commit to the entire event.
