Get out sonewhere close by and early. Hadn't been on the Cobbler this year , so it won
Usual up through the forest until it flattens out a wee bit after this and then it appears.

On past the boulders and at this point I thought, I've never turned off here and actually went up this way. Today I did, and so glad I did. Much better experience. Better views up and looking back going up this way and a wee bit of hands on here and there. Nothing technical
