You'll have to check out the Aussie10 next time!

Nice one Jase.

I like the look of the Aussie10 robw. I also like the fact the fourth highest peak in Aust doesn't have a name.

I remember trying to get the snowpole line coming back on a run around 2000, failing dismally and ending up in the scrub at the top of the escarpment a kilometre or two east of Crackenback.

robw: You could also have a crack at all the 2000m peaks although that's a bit more serious!

Yeh Blair I've tried for the snow poles a couple of times and not found them. Although never been 1-2k off!

And Rob I see what you mean re Aussie10. Thanks for link.

That is a great run at the top of Australia, esp as the day seemed to be quite clear and sunny (if a bit windy). At the risk of sounding very old fogey-ish, I recall some great runs back in the late 1970s and early 1980s with Maurice Ongania and Neil Hooper from Guthega, including an epic 50km run incorporating Kosi, Twynam, Townsend and other peaks in the main range. Spectacular running country.

Sounds epic and memorable. I reckon Neil would've loved the ultra running scene that exists now. Haven't heard of Neil for years - anyone?

Are all the 2000s doable in 24hrs?

Yeh I reckon they would be Craney.

Neil has one of the best times for the Bogong to Hotham ultra race so he would have done pretty well in a lot of the other races around now.

Uncle JiM:
Saw Neil a couple of years ago at 4 peaks. He makes it a habit to turn up at this event, and will be seen on Feathertop coming down as everyone is going up
