    Second Descent by Oli Polson and Ross Sprung; Cool trip! Blue markers stopped at 860m right when steep narrow spur started, don’t follow the orange ones, they mark horizontal bait/trapping lines… just follow spur as per topo. Very recently active rock fall at the top of R8 on the TL lots of rock debris present, and obviously still very loose. Be careful! Well worth the effort!!
