Rode this today while on our way to Shark v Eagle.
Posted as Grade 2 but I would not recommended to anybody who cannot manage grade 3. It is a knarly climb and challenging in places and probably should be a G3 when you looking at Grade 3 description. The track was otherwise in good order

Trail The Tickler
I really enjoyed the top(downhill) section of the tickler. After about 2.5-3 minutes or so the trail starts to flatten out in sections meaning you need to get those legs pumping again. Felt a bit tedious after 5 hours of riding.Would be a good ride if you still had ample energy in the tank or where after a quick fix
