Tough Descent
by droginexile  10 Jan 2013
As previously described, the view from here is amazing, we walked around from Tomies Mountain and had a beautiful clear day. simple ridge walk but the descent back to Tomies Wood is very tough, no clear path through steep heatherclad slopes. Give plenty of time to get down this way. Our sticks proved invaluable in the fading light. Delighted to see the track at the end of the day.
