The bluff's most technical XC trail, access from Meanstreak to start. Ups and downs, rocks and roots. Access from Nervous Shakedown as well (most popular direction is to exit counter-clockwise towards Meanstreak rather than climbing back up in the normal clock-wise direction). Nice view on northern most highpoint.
