A return walk along Fortress Ridge; at the end there are stunning views of Lockleys Pylon, and down the Grose Valley to Mount Bank and Docker Head. A side-trip takes you down to Fortress Creek. This is NOT the same walk as Fortress Creek - you can follow Fortress Creek/Canyon down to the cliff line and come back via Fortress Ridge to form a circuit, but one or two abseils are required.
