Completed this section in December 2016. There was still a warning sign at the start of the hike that stated that the section was closed because of a landslade however a new route was already made around the landslide. This new route is VERY steep and slippery but ropes are put up for support. For the rest no problems. route is well marked. It takes around 3 hours.
