Comments: Good day out. Trails mostly in good condition. Howker has some short interesting sections, I'm glad I was going up not down. Walk across the upper end of Pine Link was also interesting walking over the slides. Coming down Pine Link there is a long steep section before the Howker trail Junction. All very doable for experienced hikers.
Glad to talk to NOBO and SOBO trying to complete.
