    This is a super challenging descent down from the summit but it might be one my new favourites, it's rocky, steep, rough, challenging and it definitely keeps you on your toes. This is one for you if you like technical sections if not you might want to re-route this and avoid it. The single-track around it I have to say is stunning and you're following a burn which turns into a 50m waterfall so you know it's going to be steep.
