Climbed up the main road tonight past the 8km mark, over 800 meters high, to get to the start of CBC; it was well worth the effort peddling my Wilson all the way up with all my gear.

This made the down super challenging due to the steep rock faces and the man made wooden structures. The photos above were taken on CBC, showing just a few of the features on this trail.
