A challenging single track with plenty of root and rocks to keep you on your toes. It features some great rock work near the bottom where it merges with Thingymajig.

       A couple of really steep but short sections. Riding a 2016 giant trance, I had to pick my lines very carefully and basically sit on the rear tyre. I'd say it's the easiest of the blacks that I've tried but a big jump up from the blues on the hill.
