Guidelines:
- This is a tough route. It probably shouldn't be your introduction to Briar Chapel.
- You should be in good shape and be accustomed to riding rocks and other
technical features like drops and gaps.
- Know your limits and please don't hurt yourself in order to make a line. Even
skilled riders will probably hike-a-bike through parts of this route. No shame
in that.
- Wear knee pads
- Full-face helmet recommended
- Given a line option, do your best to take the gnarlier one.

This route is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!
