The track turned right here, but we decided to take a more direct route onto Chonzie's S ridge.

Notes: Icy on the mid-section of the Land Rover Track, so approx. 5 hours walking time for the round trip. Below zero for most of the walk, but absolutely no wind to speak off. Fantastic blue sky and good views. A great day's walking.
