This is the classic Downieville Downhill route. Shuttle up to the start at the Sunshine Trail. From there it goes down to Butcher Ranch, 3rd Divide, and First Divide back in to town. There are alternative routes as well, but this is the classic.

After several failed attempts, finally stuck the shortcut line on the waterfall. Great timing too.
