Starting at the T-junction with another BOAT, it heads NW descending into Roych Clough.


Roych Clough starts out quite fast and straight before a left corner into the main section, which descends more steeply, with a mix of stone slabs and bedrock. The last piece of bedrock has a fairly large drop with loose rocks on the left of the run-out and a smoother right line. The track turns back right, into another fast straight before a gate, then more straight with some drainage gulleys. Towards the end the sides of the track rise to form a gulley before the last 50m of steeper slabbed track before a ford across the stream to bottom.
