Not sure why this trail is a black diamond seemed extremely flat to me. I got on from sinks so maybe the beginning is harder

Yea, the southern half of Mountain Mist has a different character than the trail from sinks to the closed road. there's some tougher moves over rocks on the southern half that the northern half just doesn't have.

I apologize for the lack of specificity - I forgot that there are two Mountain Mist/Sinks intersections. The obstacle tree is on Mtn Mist, south of the southern Mist/Sinks intersection.

The section coming off of South Plateau is very rocky, technical,
