Just down over the edge of the hill, in the grass, is Christies Hut. A somewhat unmaintained but still functional tin hut with a long drop loo tucked into the beech forest above the stream.
The climb up onto the Old Man Range starts here. The track is good but the climb is steep but you will be rewarded with the views.

|Across the Old Man Range|
Just after the Obelisk keep left along the Prospect Hill Track (not Omeo Gully which is to the right). You head along the Obelisk Range to Prospect Hill and a steep descent onto Frasers Dam Road. After the steepness of Prospect Hill, Frasers Dam Road eases you onto Earnscleugh flats and the banks of the Clutha River.
Hang a left into Marshall Road and pop onto the Alexandra-Clyde River Trail for some nice singletrack into Alexandra itself (pop up onto the road at the steel bridge to cross the Clutha to Alex).
