Then another decent climb up to the finish spot near the Queen Victoria hospital. So walkers intending on coming should be relatively fit as a reasonable pace is required. However that doesn't mean I intend to run this walk as I do want to stop occasionally and admire the superb views along the way! Steep track sections in places.
