A fairly substantial mudslide to slip and slide through but, apart from getting really muddy, not too difficult (make sure shoes are laced really tight). On BLOWHARD track, there is a bridge out but the river is easy to cross - can boulder hop or choose to get wet.I would recommend poles as the descent is hell on the legs and knees unless you can just let loose and fly!
