      As others have said this trail is mostly a single black but a chunky steep section with a few turns in it earns it a double black rating.
      There are three sections with rock features which depending on line choice can be anywhere from blue to 'chill double black' difficultly.

      Good fun, probably deserves the rating-loose and steep in places, some small, steppy drops, one blind corner near the bottom where you’ll wanna creep into it….

      All technical features have long since rotted out. Great fun. Mostly a black trail though with once good steep 20 metres that is double black.

      This trail is a blast and probably my favorite at Kal park. Lots of epic rock faces and fun drops.

      Probably my favorite double black in the park - lots of steep chutes and faces with good ride-outs and enough mellow sections in between to regain your composure before the next dive. Fantastic flow to the trail, a real thriller.

      Used to be more fun,
      all the structures in those pictures here were taken down.
