A monstrous day in the saddle. Huge kilometers and punishing elevation gain.

 This route is no joke. Took me 20hr 42mins. Prepare to walk a lot and feel it in the morning. Thanks for putting this together Travis!

Cooler morning ride up to a Nelson classic; the Paper Bag. Lots of techy slabs, short punchy climbs and a mix of roots rocks and rhythm.

The access road is a bit sketchy, but the trail is good to hike without snowshoes (but cleats are a good idea).
