Fast and fun flowing down. Includes the \"3 Fingers of Death\", a few hill drop options, kinda like powder with plenty of open space to take whatever line you decided. This could be intermediate if you do the easy lines. There are also a couple biggish washed out drops.

      This is a blue trail, not black, with multiple drop options of varying difficulties or a bypass flowy trail down.

       Sorry, but this is definitely not a double black. More like a blue.
