Fun, technical track somewhere between intermediate and advanced. Challenging in the wet. Is a narrower and more off-camber version of its neighbour, Jail Brake. Top section starts with a drop in trail filter and a few doubles (all roll-able), then some nice switchbacks. Mid section is a tree-rooty traverse along the ridge and the last section is a steeper drop with several big switchbacks down to join the end of Repeat Offender.
