The original line was one of Svoboda’s more daunting trails because of the steep rock gardens and scary rock roll moves, but now with saner modern upgrades, it is more flowing with some techy rock gardens and fun rock faces. The original line still exists in places but is not maintained and has some old school, unmarked stunts.
