Pretty gnarly descent with a couple of droppy root sections. A few options about half way down: three routes - far right ("Kootney Anal" sign); very steep and challenging, middle one; steep and reasonably challenging and left; much more mellow and will connect up to Blue Matador if you want a much more easy way down.

Access Info

Either hit it from coming down Al Matador, or ride up the Shuttle Road until you get to the gravel pit. 48 Hours entrance is on the left of the pit, as you face the mountain above you.
