I think Captain Cook may have been too polite. Sailing past in 1770 he named this distinctive peak Pigeon House. The Aboriginal name of Didthol, a word meaning “woman’s breast” seems closer to the mark.
Either way, I made my way up on a gloomy morning, passed numerous times by enthusiastic boot campers and trail runners. At 6km return with a few steep spurts its a prime training spot. This day however my efforts were denied any views as the clouds closed in so I focused on looking for some colour closer to the trail.
