Description

Am exhilarating start with a single track descent into Barret's Creek followed by a bone jarring descent into the Elands Valley to cross the Elands River.

It will be dark by then, and 100 Milers will ascent the tarred Clivia pass with a full moon - no need for a headlamp or GPX device during the next 30 kays.

The final push to the Tower will be the toughest section on this leg before a welcome break at Excalibur Lodge.
