"...The trail ends on the shoulder below the Black Tusk. Only those who are properly equipped and experienced should attempt climbing the Tusk. The ascent of the last 100 metres is by a loose rock "chimney", and must be negotiated very carefully. Beware of falling rocks." Participates should have scramble experience on stiff class 3 and be confident with loose rock terrain. ***Please email me with your hikes/scrambles experience.***
