The Notch - 2480m elevation
On the Skyline Trail this pass called "The Notch" is the big talking point and one of the major achievements on the hike. The elevation gain means a challenging workout when carrying a heavy pack but the satisfaction and views make it all worthwhile. This is our big day distance wise as well - some 17km. At the time this video was taken I mis-stated the distance to go. It was 14km not 11km.Whilst it is mainly down from here there are still plenty of landforms to negotiate complete with ups and downs to keep it interesting and by the time we get to Signal Camp we are quite fatigued.
