Typically ridden east to west when riding the Angel's Staircase loop. Channel your inner mountain goat to reach the false summit at the junction with Merchant's Basis #417.1. Once past the junction, the climb becomes manageable to humans up to Deadhorse Pass.

 Note: The advanced double diamond rating applies mostly to the last 1/4 of the trail at the top of the climb, cough, er, hike up the steep switchbacks, or descending this area. This portion of the trail is virtually un-rideable on most bikes you'd have way up here. That being said, this part of the trail is pretty safe to hike up provided you don't kick any boulders loose, hitting people below you.

So call this a "soft" double diamond trail. The rest of the trail is a mix of blue and black, including a short hike a bike at the first climb just out of Cooney Lake.
