Not a bad walk over from Werfa. The track is quite damaged by all the 4x4 and trail bikers that use these hills. The ground was pretty frozen today which made the going easier. The trig has a chunk missing out of it near the bottom and hence the damaged classification. This is a grassy sheep grazing plateau with a nearby mast.
