A simple loop through Piedmont, hitting almost all of the most difficult trails in the system. There are a few 'gravity-oriented' segments, but most of this route is characteristically very difficult XC, with several mountain-goat-ish climbs. There is tons of rock on this route.

NOTE: there is just one very short portion of Lower Burner that you'll overlap twice: the first time you'll bail to the right to climb up NIMBY and then descend BOB, and the second time, after climbing Valley Girls, you'll continue on Lower Burner past NIBY, to Deerslayer.
