You can go up or down but the name is a reference to how many times you will have to stop if you try to climb it. OK, yes, there are some freakish riders who are able to clean the whole thing going up, but you are not likely to be one of them. Going down you will be jamming the brakes the whole way down.

It is a way to get to the ridge so you can ride down Sierra Pelada Tarantula Juice so there is a reason to go up. I don't know why anyone would ride down when there are better options.
