There were no signs at the Dry River and Mt Eisenhower junctions with the Crawford Path concerning the conditions in the Dry River valley.
The few wet areas on the Crawford Path were in treed areas on Mt Pierce and in the lower spots to Mt Eisenhower. There were adequate rocks and small logs to aid in traversing the short mud stretches.
