Note: the climb is a black diamond rating, whereas the decent is a blue square rating.
A Cut Above was built by WORCA as a climbing connector from Whip Me Snip Me to the top of Beaver Pass, although it is also used as a descent more frequently in recent years.

Built to the highest standards, this trail was built by WORCA's dedicated trail vollies over the past few years at trail nights, and completed this fall by paid WORCA contractors thanks to support from Stonebridge Developments. In 2021 WORCA's trail crew completed upgrades to improve the trail for 2 direction use.

      Cleared the wee sapling. Also cleared the big tree (at least 1 GRBE) that was about 1.75m in the air, a little further up the trail - but I forgot...
