The walk is initially on the flat, and then starts a medium ascent on the edge of the ridge. Once on top of the ridge we walk to the edge of the amphitheatre, see photo above, with excellent views down the steep slope. We make a further, steep climb and then descend via a track into a valley and return to the start point.
The walk is about 10 km and is expected to take about 3.5 hrs.
