Track number two into Weano Gorge followed the next day and consisted of a little longer part of class 4 walk through Weano gorge that was quite easy and pleasant and again avoided swimming through the water by climbing the rocks.

The class 5 track led through a small and a little slippery gorge sideways down a waterfall (fortunately, somebody had mounted a handrail) down to Handrail Pool where some of us took a bath.

This was followed by a rather adventurous trip on extremely slippery rocks that were along the rock walls in the water. Some of us had left some clothes at the pool because everybody expected to fall into the water since the track was so difficult but everybody made it back safe, sound and dry (except for the legs).

And back we went from Handrail Pool to the normal track:

We needed to cross the water part again when I thought why not take the other way and started climbing along the rock walls on the left followed by Sebastian:

After Weano Gorge we stepped onto one of the Lookout platforms and tried to figure out where we had been before:

A slightly less exercising but quite longer track was done in the afternoon in the Dales Gorge where we went down to the Circular Pool, through the beautiful Dales Gorge to the Fortescue Falls, further on to the Fern Pool and finally along the rim of the gorge back to the car park. What a great adventure and another successful day!
