"Of course I climbed the Rock," said Mrs. Kelty, five times a grandmother. "That' what I came for. And I've taken a pebble back for each of the grandchildren."
First girl to climb the mountainside was Evelyn Camm, former dressmaker, now a Melbourne tram conductress, who said balancing on trams could have helped her balance on the Rock.
And first "safari" girls to write names on paper, enclosing them in jam-tins or bottles at the stone cairn, were Colleen Lewin, of Tasmania, and Victorians Esma Davis, Jean Mason, and Nancie Reed. Lying around, sucking mandarins and admiring the view and the soaring eagles above, we were all feeling pretty smug about our achievement, when over the rise came grandmother Mrs. Sarah Esnouf, of Melbourne, helped by Peter Watts and Ian Lovegrove. Mrs. Esnouf, one of the oldest in the party, joined us, crying, "How exhilarating. Have you ever seen anything so wonderful? And look at the beautiful wildflower I picked on the way."
"I'll always remember the view, the curve, and the distance looking down, and the most wonderful sight of all the boys bringing Sarah to the top."
