Phew, that's a long walk, well done for doing it in one.

I was hoping to do this route when I need to do these four, but maybe the other way round, get the hills out the way and then 'stroll' back at my leisure, if I have enough energy left.

Won't be for a few years yet though :-(

Hi. There is a path most of the way although you lose it at times in the boulder fields !! We didn't encounter any boggy areas
