That’s a dead easy one, even for a Crow Eater like me, and yes we have been there........lol, it’s off the GCR on a side track on your RHS heading north from Laverton........

Lang Rock


And if you keep going east, it will bring you to Rutter's 1894 grave

Seeing that was an easy one, have you been to this Gorge?

You have to get permits that took for ever, but you have to pass this old water tanker first....



much of the track is either washed away or overgrown but you will then come to this gorge...


On reaching the bottom you will then come to a dead end....it would look great when full of water, and on the walls, there is evidence of marks where they were used to sharpen stone implements, like spear tips, axes and knives



I know of only one other experienced EO traveller that has been here, so I will not dob you in Phil.....

Haven't been there myself Stephen but I think my mate Stan might have but not yeosterday.

Jaydub and I had permits to go all the way through to the Business Road to the east (there is a feint track there) in 2015 but unfortunately time got the better of us. Kicking myself. Still plenty of time though.

Cheers

Yes there is a track on Goole Earth, yet in real life it is non existent. We wanted to do a Degree Confluence and on Mr Google Earth, we should have had a track to follow within about 500 metres from it, yet it completely disappeared and we had to bush bash for around 5 Kilometres.

I tried my very best to follow the so called track on Ozi, driving trough metre tall plus Spinifex when then was a loud thud on the side of the car. We stopped immediately and in typical Langman luck a four inch cut right through the Rear sidewall with the compliment of a mulga stump.

Stephen,

I have not been to the chasm but I did recognise your photo of the turn off from the Connie Sue.

John C16 have you ever been home, you seem to have been everywhere else. As I have said previously you & Stephen would be almost unbeatable. Wonderful.

Like most people Batsy, I am home at the moment.

Stephen and I would make a good trivial pursuit team. Maybe we should enter the next competition at the Sandfire roadhouse. That would be a good excuse to enter WA.

Cheers, John

I always had a suspicion that my father was a thief. When I went home all the signs were there.
