The first part of this track is like a tunnel in the undergrowth. It seems the track is only marked where it is visible anyway - when there is no visible track there seem to be no markers either. (red splashes of paint on trees). There is a broad, wooded ridge there to follow but no marks and very poor track visibility.

The track is hard to find, use gps, very over grown, first part is a lot of crawling under fallen trees and branches, I cleared a lot but still hard going, marking are hard to find at times , I think I was the only one to do this in about 5 years , in the end couldn’t find the summit
