      This trail joining to Asian Adonis is a blue in my opinion, the section that splits off from Asian is extremely steep, with large roots, rock, very tight sections. No room to recover from a error, high probability of injury. In my opinion the second half is beyond double black.

      I’m an intermediate/blue-trail rider; can fairly comfortably ride John Deer... wanting to work my way up to easier blacks. If I wanted to ride Asian Adonis, what’s the top section of this trail like, from Baden Powell to the entrance of Asian? Some of the comments here have me a little anxious, like this is black-pushing-doubleblack trail, closer to Boogieman than John Deer so I don’t wanna get on something that’s outta my league... but would give Asian Adonis a go!

      If you can ride John Deer, you can ride to Asian Adonis.
      Take Dickie - C-Buster - Adonis
      Enjoy I did it yesterday for a change from Severed Smile

      Probably the hardest ‘sanctioned’ trail on Seymour. A significant step up from other blacks on the mountain, and harder than Boogieman in my opinion.

      This may be rated double black, relative to the rest of Seymour. This mind bender is significantly and consistently more tech than Boogie (at least the top part before Boogie nights turnoff), Deer John and Empress. It may just be due to the time of year, erosion and raw nature of it, but cleaning this requires deep focus/skill, apparently neither of which I possess. There's a crank deep water rut forming on last steep section, too.

      After the great touch-ups, and in the dry, I'd change my mind to solid black (minus some of the old skinnies on the top bit). Thanks for the work. Good times.

      Finally rode C-Buster for the first time tonight, wow, what a blast! Lots of fall-line technical fun. Rocks, roots and hard corners. Thank you MTBTrails / Lee / Sharon and anyone else involved.

      How is C-Buster 'Unsanctioned' vs any of the other trails in that area ?

      Stringaling. C-Buster, Shorn Scrotum and Asian Adonis are in the CMHC and correctly described as 'unsanctioned''. All trails in that area aren't sanctioned fyi. They're the ones Sharon and I maintain and it seemed like a good idea to accurately describe them.
