The elevation chart for this trail is wrong. It's also in the wrong direction

I don't think this climb trail is nearly as difficult as the climb trail to Half Nelson. It's pretty straight forward with a few switchbacks and tech.

I would consider this a very easy blue. Mostly green but one or two tech sections that are easy to walk. The sudden uphill in the middle caught me off guard. Overall really fun and great for beginners trying to progress.

Barely ride-able, you have to hike your bike in the beginning. No flow, very over grown, not fun, avoid.

Don’t think the climbing is bad heading east. Wouldn’t go out of my way to do it, but if need be it’s totally fine. Lose rocks, but never too steep nor technical.

Climb is not for the faint of heart. Steep and loose.

A great trail for vegans. It's all plants, quite overgrown. Wouldn't recommend

Awesome trail. If you're a fan of trails like Comfortably Numb or Somewhere Over There you will enjoy this one. Lots of fun little climbs and some good tech.

Semi-worthwhile if you pop out to the guanxi connector after the awesome rock slabs. Though you're in the hanky lowers of entrails. I mean worth doing once I guess.

Better get you laps in soon, the property is for sale which the lower section runs through.

It’s the kinda trail that like has a really annoying awful climb but has a big reward, but the thing with border patrol is it just ends before the reward. Definitely not worth in my opinion

With the Guanxi connector to skip some of the overgrown stuff this is a great trail. Tough technical climbs but all rideable and a very nice alternative to the mashiter descent.

Beautiful made road up past huge cliffs, some logging history along the way too. Last steeper section only very strong climber could clean.

It’s good to go. Sure it’s a bit over grown but it’s still a fun ride

Fun down trail to get back to Tantalus after riding Alice Lake trails. Nice combo after Rollercoaster to finish the day. Lots of roots, hence the name!

Awkward Flowy Fun is a good description! Lot of roots and tight moves to keep you on your toes! I really like this trail since it definitely feels longer than it is! Lots of features!

A somewhat old school trail in that there are short climbs throughout the trail, but lots of technical bits to keep riders challenged. It may not be the flowiest trail in town, but it's worth checking out if you like black tech trails.

A classic SQUAMISH trail for the past 25 years that wraps up any ride ending on Perth with a big smile on your face. A crowd favorite for the Test of Metal. Good for any rider. Beginners may find the last pitch worth a walk.

Rode this July 2015, very steep climb, spent most of the time walking my bike. No big features just very steep climb on a narrow trail!
