Having crossed to the TL on the 3-wire bridge, there is a short sharp climb to the 800m contour. Then, rising and falling, is a well defined track, under beech for a little over 2km before breaking out into a clearing.

At the other end, 1km away, is Bobs Hut. We kept to the TL and crossed easily at low water levels directly opposite the hut.

This crossing would be problematic following heavy rain.
