Always nice running around Hunters Hill with the tree lined streets and steep drops down to the water on both sides. Cool conditions added to the enjoyment. The section along the shore 18-21 was particulalrly nice - and new to me. The main route conundrums were the multiple options through Kelly's bush and which 10-pointers to drop. The rest was relatively obvious.
Made a comedy of errors around #20. Initially from 8 I missed the track junction. Decided to keep going to 15 because I thought could easily get it on the way back from the top. Not so... From 11 I bashed through the scrub/lantana, then missed the track again from the other end. Somehow down near 8 again I eventfully found the way after wasting 3mins. Relatively minor 30s errors at 17 and 25. On a positive note, my knee felt okay on the descents although still not striding 100%.
Skipped 3,4 5 on the way back for 570, 6mins over = 510. Way off Ondrej's impressive 570. Andy, Richard and Toby 530.
