The plan was up Cootha to see the moon. Decided to add in a little extra loop at the bottom and arranged to meet again with Francois at the hut. When I got to the hut I couldn't find him anywhere so I did a loop of butterfly track to try to find if he'd gone into the forest earlier and was waiting for me along there somewhere, but no such luck. Found a friend and had a short chat then did another loop from the hut then just bailed and went up to the top because it was getting too dark and I didn't have a light. The last km or so wasn't great because I was tired and losing good form and a bit stressed out because I wasn't with Francois and also couldn't see the track without a light. Found him at the top, along with a ton of other people in a massive traffic jam, I guess trying to see the moon which by that point wasn't very impressive anymore. Nice night out though, though stomach wasn't feeling the best because I had to eat pretty soon before heading out after spending a while at the dentists this afternoon. Sunset was really pretty though and the moon was really cool early on.
