      Super awesome. Mostly packed snow. A couple of the (otherwise) rocky parts in the top third were nicely filled in. Chunkier on the flatter section near the bottom. Studs not necessary.

      Forgot to mention that descent was mostly packed snow. Enough to help soften roots drops near Razor access. Pretty great descending overall. Studs not necessary
