High Point

My first route attempt - pretty unpleasant I must say!

The climb turns nasty up snake charmer but once at the summit, it's long technical downs: T3 & Vertigo. Some average traversing after popping out in suburbia (eek!), but it culminates in faster technical descents with Live Wires

The new section is very muddy. Best to avoid for a few days after rain and ride the old line reporter
