  • Global Ranking

Extremely steep, loose, and rocky at the top switchbacks with many worn out jumps and drops. Following section through the canyon is dangerously narrow and loose, riding just up against a 20-30 ft cliff that drops into a boulder filled canyon. Take it slow the first time around.
