High Point

Phat Bastard, Mushroom Head, Lactic Ridge, Moc Assassin, Stupid Traverse, Slunt (S-Bomb) and Brokeback. This is ‘THE’ loop to do on this side. The climbing starts gentle but you’ll be seriously tested to clean parts of Lactic Ridge (although the new Moc Assassin trail means its ‘doable’ for more riders now). Ride over on Stupid Traverse enjoying amazing views down to town and get ready for huge ear-ear grins as you hit the super fun and flowly Slunt (S-Bomb) and onto Brokeback – yippee aye yeh! A shorter loop is just to climb Hedonism to access Brokeback – great if your short on time or want another quick crack at Brokeback!

 Highly recommend this route! It's a grind to get to top of the climb, but the downhill sections down Slunt (S-Bomb), and Brokeback are SOOOO fun!
