Popular downhill route from the summit that is sheltered from the southerly (hence the name). Sits squarely between Peak Flow and Ridgeline in difficulty and, has some big berms and switchbacks. Surface is fairly rough and some short sections are grade 4. Combining with JFK, Smokin' and Starfish gives an uninterrupted intermediate ride all the way back to the carpark.
