  • Hikers in colorful attire
  • Before any new route is complete we go back to strengthen some of the linking points to include yet more interesting scramble highs. This exciting new Loop is ready to share.  It has  plenty of challenging climbing, up and down slots, caves and views.  A lot of team effort  went into scouting and exploring the route, editing it down and then adding some extra excitement.  Adept scrambling and climbing skills are needed plus an openness to adventure.


    Distance: 2 miles
    Elevation gain: 800 feet
    Time: 3.5 hours.
    Class: 3/4
