This section of trail has been permanently closed. You must now either do the switchback on the Snotch (LPS main route) or take very steep and committing Notch descent thru the rock wall. If you want to walk either, the Snotch is easier but busier. Both can be walked with care.

       Trail does not exist. Or couldn’t find it. There is no trail beyond the notch that bypasses it

       This trail does not exist, because we looked for it. If you want to avoid the notch descent take a right at the first fork down the shifty rock switchbacks, follow the signage on the trail.

       This trail still does not exist or at least doesn't as per the explanation. You still have to do the notch. Please fix this as there's tons of people bushwalking the area trying to find it.
