The Gladiator Fire in the Bradshaw Mountains last year caused a lot of landscape changes. We followed the tracks on the GPS and occasionally picked up one other set of moto tracks through the rocks and downed trees. Huge amounts of water rushed through the washes so fast and with such force after the fires that any small trees were washed away or bent over and pointing downstream.
Some of the trees were not forgiving!
After fighting our way through the trees we came up this off-camber rock face.
Only to end up here.
The rock face was the easy option. The other option, through the small gap, had bit of a step and the rock was greased up with algae.
For some reason this area was full of huge, dead beetles.
