As I get older and my ability to climb on consecutive days on the hills becomes more difficult, I tend to 'go large' on the days I do go out. Hence, my plan was to climb all 7 of the 600m peaks in the Bluestacks in one go!
You will notice that this track seems to end abruptly! This is because I left my mountain bike at this spot, which is, in effect, the end of the motorable section of the road through the valley. If walking back to the start point from here, plan to add an additional 3kms or so.
