Just like the name, tight and steep. Tough climb, but not rocky, mostly powder dirt. Historically that has often been a brutal climb in several XC race series. It is mostly smooth so you can climb, but it is unrelenting and near the top, so you have already climbed a lot. Going down from the top, it is a bit tight in spots, but can be fast and flowy with some nice berms to maintain speed.
