Fantastic climbing trail-enough tech to keep you on your toes but totally reasonable grade. Same goes for upper Stone Free which is less tech but a steady grade.

The tree that had fallen and you had to duck under is now about chest height. Would have dealt with it if I had a saw.

Put 20hr into the trail yesterday. Hit a few of the bigger holes, smoothed sections, cut out a tree, hit the drains. Over it got some ????

That is one huge tree down across trail .... my suggestion is to leave it there and make a feature off of it ... one for Advanced and one for intermediates ... you dont get a tree down like that very often

There is a tree down at the bottom of the trail where you climb up out of the parking lot to head to Sidewinder. I saw it Wednesday at noon, it isn't too big but needs to be cut out as I couldn't move it.

This is listed here as a black, but the NOCS signage and their iPhone app clearly indicate it is a Blue.
