Branch across track near Long way junction. Small hand saw should be enough reporter

Take care after the long rock garden as there has been a mudslide that has been temporarily turned into a rollable hump. Do a visual on it first before hitting it with speed. Also the run into the first rock slab up until the Right hander under the cliff face has been cleaned up. Track is good enough to ride.
