Tight, technical, rooty and steep. Arguably the most difficult climb to clean in the Bow Valley followed by a narrow, fun, technical descent. Trail is a true test of cardio and bike handling ability. Connect to "Lower Stoney Squaw" for the longest sustained downhill in the area.

Still a skiff of snow less than five cm on upper stony from recent spring storm. Will melt out in a day or two and be good to go
