Loved this ride! Climbing all the way to the top is a haul, but actually not too bad if you take it slow and steady. Upper Powersmart is intense - very rocky with lots of drops and loose baby heads. Full face for sure. If you’re not into raw and intense riding take Meadow of the Grizzly to Short Cut and then link up with IMBA Smart. The highlight of this ride is Fred. Flowy, steep, some techy features and all around awesome.
