Many deacdes ago 4 of us went into Federation peak just after Xmas with the intention of doing the summit of the peak (the "Tourist Route") and then some of the shorter climbs in the area. We got up onto the plateau via Luckmans Lead so it took a few days to get in. We had an AM radio with us and were able to get good weather forcasts as the Sydney - Hobart yacht race was on. After the usual 'showers contracting to the southwest' it became storms/snow/etc so we decided to bail, and admittedly going down, we were consistently below the lowest of the Chapman times. On the way in we were in the band of times he proffered. At the time we were probably doing a weekend climbing and alternating with a weekend walking for some months. Chapman was probably doing the lower of the estimated times, or less, he was (is?) a fit unit.
