I retreated a little and climbed out to the north at the first convenient break in the rocks, then made my way westward along the north wall of 13 Pools Creek. At the end of the ridge I turned right and made my way down the steep spinifex spur to meet Ormiston Creek at the north end of Bowmans Gap.
Here I met up with Brian. We dropped our packs and headed south through Bowmans Gap, then turned left into the lower part of 13 Pools Creek. Only 10 pools had water in them today, but in May 2019 there was only one pool with water. We made our way upstream until it develops into the Canyon of the 13 Pools.
At one point there's a steep scramble along a line of Callitris Pines to get around a series of unclimbable steps, then it's back to the creekbed to scramble up some fairly steep bits. We reached the final pool and its waterfall, before retracing our steps.
