A fantastic shorter intermediate ride on the north shore. All of the climbing in this ride is on fire road or paved road and all of the descents are on new school flow trails or intermediate single track. The two main trails are Bobsled and upper, middle and lower Griffin. Have fun!

      Hey Baden Powell Climb Braiders! Power up the original climb route over the route like the last 40 years as I Blocked your climbing braid to the right of the tree that would just erode as bad anyways. This is the punchy climb after ladies just before you begin the final descent to the fromme road.
