A shocker!
« on: September 18, 2013, 03:35:58 AM »
Walked this in 2012 with the family. My son had missed doing this walk with his school so we agreed to walk it one weekend to make up. I was expecting a gentle stroll  - which it isn't  :). Track was very steep, wet, had been cut up by MTB (massive channel in middle - made it two tracks really). Finally got to the top - what a view! Coming back down was very slippery - had to grab trees that line the track to stop us slipping. Combine the steepness, the track conditions and its become known as the track from hell in my family :). However, a year later I'm a lot fitter than I was then and I plan to walk it again, and this time I'll come back via the Blowhard and Bypass tracks to make it a full day. Don't think I'll be able to persuade the family though :)
