Note: the top of the gut used to climb to Lake Wilson holds snow into January and an ice axe should be carried.
From just past the bluffs at Harris Saddle head northwestwards off the track as if making for the southeast corner of Conical Hill and look for a grass slope descending steeply to the shore of Lake Harris. At the bottom of the slope you should find a trapping line with a ground trail that runs around the western shore of the lake. Follow this until you reach the entrants to the valley at the head of the lake, unofficially known as The Valley of the Trolls. Theres camping here on grass beside the stream. Climb through boulders on the true right of the stream to make your way into the valley. Once through the boulders cross swampy terrain to the valley head and cross the stream beneath the waterfall. Theres a rock bivvy located about half way up the length of the valley and about 40m off the valley floor. On the true left of the waterfall a grassy gut climbs all the way up to the top of the hill. Climb all the way up to a rocky shelf. The lake outlet and camping spot is at the northern end of the shelf.
