Nurse Ratched begins descending through a small cliff band on single track and winds across the mountain through two rock gardens with multiple line options. The track is partially bench cut single track with some tight berms and one 5-6 foot drop that is roll-able to the right. Fastest times on Nurse are in the 2 minute range but it is built to session in the rock gardens so you could take a fun hour.
