Pretty physical climb. The double track is a good, Spring-prep for Puke Hill. It's steep and loose. Once you're up on top at the third set of cell towers, NSL Rollercoaster plunges off the ridgeline. It's super steep, but the faster you go the less pedaling you have to do to get up the next steep face, and then you plunge again! Take note: the first descent is pretty solid, the second and third plunges are really loose, so it takes some skill with the brakes.
