 Peaky, a good route if you got a free afternoon. The beast addition is bit pointless but the downhill to it is ace. Wish there was a better way of connecting it with Potato alley. Last section before going back to Hope has so many gates that it becomes very annoying after a while. Overall awesome route 34k with lot of good climbing and downhills.

 I agree cracking route, but the last leg to hope I think id turn right next time it will take you back down the way we came up to the woods by the beast no gates at all plus a more technical decent.
