Steep uphill climbing from saddle on the East, with a gate near the top heading next to the Gondola station. Then wooden step risers on the downhill side (bikes allowed, but be courteous to walkers) before it opens out into some extra rocky and technical sections of nearly grade 5 rock gardens. Finish at the Shelter, top of the Bridal path.
