Ascent Trip ReportThe next morning, John, Ben, and I set out up and across the Wilkinson Creek valley to Alice Rawson and Townsend. The weather was clear and warm but not hot, and we made good time across the brushy slopes. Arriving at the saddle between Townsend and Mueller, we took a few minutes to get our bearings. Alice Rawson and Townsend seem to be very large boulder piles atop rounded ridges. We headed for Alice Rawson first, and climbed the near end without difficulty. Here we may have made a misjudgment -- we decided the end we had climbed was the highest, and did not climb the peak in the middle or the peak at the other end. If we got this wrong, we might have misinterpreted the account in the "Aussie10" web site. At least one map (which I looked at after returning to the US) labels the far end of the Alice Rawson rock pile as "Mount Alice Rawson". In any case, we could tell for certain that the middle peak was not the highest, and it seemed we were higher than the far peak, so we headed back down to the saddle between Alice Rawson and the obviously-higher Mt. Townsend. At the top of Alice Rawson, I was unable to turn on my brand-new DeLorme PN-40 GPS, which remained dead for the rest of the trip. I was disappointed for a number of reasons -- at least partly because I was hoping to provide better coordinates for this web site. Upon returning home, I sent it in under warranty to the maker. They sent it back with a note "it works fine". And, for awhile, it did -- then it failed again while I was out on Bearfort Mountain, the highpoint of Passaic County, New Jersey.
