|East Face Crookneck (Coonowrin)
But it was getting late in the day and, because the rest of the climb was an easy scramble to the top, we decided to abseil down. I went first. All went well until half way down from the overhang. While I was hanging free from the face my parka jammed in the carabiner and I was stuck. It was getting dark and the prospect of hanging there for the night did not appeal. I managed to lift myself up with one hand to relieve the pressure and half tore the parka out of the carabiner. I resumed my way to the bottom and Pat joined me there. We drove back to Brisbane with some fellow Kiwis who'd, mysteriously, managed to secrete a few pineapples into the boot of my car while Pat and I had been wasting our time up on the mountain.
