PMG Walk 60 - The "Bens"! Well it has been awhile since I have had such a rocky mountainous terrain to walk on! It was tough enough going at times too! To be honest this was one of those walks that made me a little nervous. I read a lot about how slippy the rock could be and considering the wet conditions of late it made me wonder how "slippy" it may get! In the end I got dry weather but the rocks that were wet were most certainly slippy when wet! Overall a great walk which can be done as a loop with one car too..so no hitching for me this time at least ;)
