       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

       This trail should have a double black rating. Fantastic tech

       This is a good one! I agree. Should be double black by today’s standards.

       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.

       My favorite trail on fromme by a mile! Arguably the most technical and difficult trail on the mountain.
      please close the braid around the tight rooty left hand turn. I do not like to see more chicken lines pop up as this increases traffic on a fragile trail. please do not ride this after heavy rainfall!

       Entrance sign is gone, work is being done mid-trail and it needs it. Rode it wet today and it was rough! Nothing dangerous just seems like the Back Tire Grooming society has been ‘taking’ care of it for a while...
