 It won't show up on your Trailforks, but there is a much better connector than Whips and Chains into the Bluffs.
Once there, head a little higher and connect into Sam I Am for the ultimate in body destroying fatigue before you climb Rock Oven.

 I'll send you your own route for that section, I tried 'whipping' up a new route but that thing was exhaustingly HUGE.

 Hey - I pushed my bike up whips and chains one day. Any hint as to the alternative route. It is too bad that everything has to be top secret out there.
