Took us 9.5 hours. Bit unlucky with the weather as it rained all day. But there must be some amazing views on a clear day! Still an amazing trail on the ridges. Took the wrong way down on one of the peaks so good to keep an eye on your phone ;)

Great trail with amazing views. Takes longer than you would think from the hike stats but well worth it. Descent from the final munroe is aggressive - take poles if you have sensitive knees.

It’s a long day but worthwhile. A couple of narrow ridges that are a bit scary! Some big climbs ... took us 9 hours. Watch for abrupt changes in weather ...

First to Review

Plan to get to the start early in the morning, will take you longer than expected. Bring lots of layers and I suggest hiking poles. Lose rocks. Wear proper hiking boots.
