This is a walk that I've heard mentioned on this forum several times but I've yet to get up there even though its pretty close to me, will definitely have to rectify that soon :D

Haha, nice video. Would have liked to have seen some footage of the narrow 'saddle' on saddle yoke! I take it the camera was away so you could negotiate it safely. Hope you enjoyed the drink in the bull, my local. Great to see reports round my area.
