      Damp and slick, but not particularly muddy. Roots were like greased owl shit.

       Great addition to connect to after a top to mid descent. Rocks and roots. Thumbs up.

       Easier than Nescafé but still very technical. Ride it with confidence and you’ll enjoy it. Tentative black diamond trail riders will find it hard.
