A reasonably steady climb with three main traverses across the face of the hill. The first traverse has a few short steeper pinch climbs mixed in. The second traverse has a slightly easier gradient through some spectacular big eucalyptus trees. The third traverse in the open area which has been logged, again with a couple of short pinch climbs in it.
