GRADE: D+
TIME: 4½ hours
DISTANCE: 13 km.
TERRAIN: Undulating path with steep sections and some scrambling.

Cross the Mahai below the casual car park. Follow the path up and across the sign-posted intersection. Just beyond it is a signpost pointing left up Broome Hill valley. Climb steadily until reaching the Grotto forest. Just before that turn right by a path leading down and across the stream, up the opposite side, along to the left, and into trees below the krantz. Continue along “King Solomon’s Mines” for 50 m; a signpost points to a hole in the krantz which leads through the rock face. Then up the steep grassy slope to the top. The view overlooking the “Big Blind Valley” is outstanding.
