Starting at the top of Chapel Gate where it joins the bridleway from Lord's Seat, the track gently descends SW til it joins the road and the start of the BOAT to Roych Clough.
Rushup is quite flat for the first section, before it reaches a bedrock section where it steepens a little with small natural drops in the bedrock for 50m or so, before it returns to a flatter gradient and loose rocks that reduce speed and make hard work of the track. The tracks faces the prevailing wind, which doesn’t help either.
