I was expecting todays tracks to be a bit boring and dead ends as I knew nothing can go through to join the ridgeline track that runs parallel with the 105 but nothing was further from the truth.
Fun tracks with some that became loops

One goes back towards the 105 and becomes single track, I stop where it would be too difficult to get up again and walk down a bit further.
It gets to the point where walking down is treacherous which is annoying as it joins the 105 but getting the bike down alone is impossible unless I just launch it and pick it up at the bottom
