I am unsure of the original name, this is just what I have been told. It does make sense because the initial climb from the DQ table (Classic to DQ) is punishing to the uninitiated.
However, it is an excellent singletrack climb to get to the summit.

Access Info

From the DQ table (Classic to DQ), proceed straight (or left depending on perspective) down the gully and up the other side. Follow trail.

 This trail starts at the top of Puke Hill. Head south off the road, crosses the DH course and winds it's way along the ledge until it crosses the power line. It then makes it's way up to the DQ table then up to the top of the DH course. Built in 1998\99 by TOPSOG.
