    There maybe be at the end. I stopped before. I got into a clear cut area and was starting to wonder if I was still on public land. Didn't look like much reason to continue.

    That's the one. I was there in May and all the springs were running good. Someone at Neel Gap told me that late summer things got much drier.

    Is that a full length UQ?

    Check out Shug's video on adjusting a full UQ. You may need to get a buddy to lay in hammock and adjust UQ. It may be too tight in places or not in correct spot.
