Day one begins on a small section of easy walking track leading to Beehive Falls before starting the very steep ascent up the escarpment. We then leave our rucksacks at the intersection and enjoy a packless walk out to Briggs Bluff. Continuing our ascent through more escarpment and over continually changing trail from rock to sand and small flowing water crossings, we make the final campsite approach along a more open and relaxed trail.
Day two starts with the climb to the summit of Mt Difficult before a long and wonderfully exposed downhill scramble back to the beginning of the circuit.e Alps.
