Present at start: Bill Uren, Ann Macgregor, Evie Bowen, Karin van Niekerk, Janet Moore, Greg Moore, Fran Hunziker, Tony Bowen, Greg Devine, Cheryl Devine, Terry White and Dave Collett.

The access road to Taitskop is in fairly good condition but not suitable for sedan vehicles. The footpath is seriously overgrown and there is a need for alien clearing to take place in the mountain catchment.
