Start Point : Little Town (NY 231 194)
Distance : 9.0 miles Height Ascended : 960 metres
The first of the morning light catches Robinson, todays first objective.
Low High Snab.
Looking up Scope Beck towards Robinson my route today would take a hard right just past the trees and up onto High Snab Bank .
.it is short steep climb up onto the High Snab Bank ridge ..
..but on reaching the ridge the reward is ever expanding views across Newlands and beyond as height is gained.
