       Just rode this trail for the first time today. So fun! Combined with leppard, crink, kirkford this could be my favourite lap on Fromme! Decided to watch Wade's video after, that man is on another level. Thanks NSMBA

       Agree this trail should be double black based on the other ratings on fromme, more technical than upper ladies only which is double black and much more technical than the other blacks here.

       I think this trail should be a double black, seriously steep and gnarly

       Maybe it's just me but it seems some sections of this trail are near impossible to clear in the wet. So many off camber roots that you don't get any grip on. I'd love to be proven wrong though.
