Head halfway up the tip track and cross spooky gully before heading up the red rocks track to the radar dome. From there follow the road for a couple of hundred metres before dropping down the Radome track and climbing the other side to rejoin the red rocks track.
Follow this down to the coast before finding the bunker track behind the Bach to the west. Follow this trail until the next junction before heading down into the Waipapa loop, which is run anticlockwise.
After that, it's back up to the ridgeline and along to the radar dome and down the tip track to the finish.
