Damp dirt and plenty of grip on the rocks. A good time.

 Awesome Trail with a fair bit of Flow for a Westside Double Black! The Trail is also in great condition right now.

 Pure insanity! Confident riders only! I’m happy to say I came out with a smile on my face, this trail has some fantastic (note EXPERT) rock sections. A classic for sure with some serious obstacles to clear. Loved every second of it Smile
