An epic trek of some lesser-walked areas of the Black Mountain. There is a lot of off-path walking, and the terrain is rough, boggy and tussocky in places. If the weather is truly foul, the walk may be modified on the day. Graded as Very Strenuous with 6,000 feet of ascent

General Notes
The 2020 Loosener was cut short by bad weather, allowing it to escape & breed a son who has taken steroids and vowed revenge. We'll have to defeat this one before it grows out of control..!
