Comments

There is a ~20m high impassable waterfall in Jerusalem creek located just downstream of where the 900m contour crosses the stream on the topo map. To get around it we were forced to backtrack 300m and climb 500m vertical up the marked scree on the south (true right) side of Jerusalem stream before crossing a steep vegetated spur and descending back to the stream via the next scree upstream. If there is an alternative way around the waterfall we couldn't find it!
