tyrones story: Shamens leap eagle tyrone

I once knew a young man called Tyrone with heart trouble, he showed me round a patch
of land on a community near the pinnacle I was interested in. I told him
I planned to walk to the pinnacle the following day, and offered to take him, he said yes. The following morning I turned up at his parents
house on the community, to be told he had taken his life by jumping off
the pinnacle. Though i do wander in fact if he just fell, It was the best walk you could do, but in places has sheer drops. I have seen eagles
accelerate down the ridge. They have shut the walk off now but its still there if you climb over the railings of the new lookout. Guaranteed
one of the best walks in australia. Shamens leap eagle tyrone
