This is a short and steep connection between Ribs and Waipapa Loop.

Like most of the tracks in the Hawkins Hill area, the track surface is rocky and loose (especially when dry), which can make for a difficult climb due traction issues. The loose surface can also make for a tricky descent on the steeper sections.

The climb out of Waipapa Stream valley is steep whichever way you go, with the choices being: Waipapa West, Waipapa Loop, and Radome.
