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

Drains have been cleared by WCC and trail is running pretty sweet at the moment. A few puddles here and there after rain but much improved. reporter
