Start directly opposite finish of Pitch The Driver down steep soil and zigzag right to join established singletrack on a berm. Continue down passing an optional 'Double' on the left, then using left and right berms then traverse left across new trail traversing across and down between 2 large tree trunks. Finishes on bottom few feet of Wow and The Only Way Is Down trails. One of the better downhills and fairly even Red Grade.
