Day cut short due to weather, but pretty cool route. Not super challenging, but seems like a great summer walk. The section descending down from black hill to the woodland was pretty boggy. Don't think it would be a fun ascent, and not sure it would have been tractable in heavy rain. If repeating route, remember to head to intersection of fences between saddle and woodland.
