       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.

       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.

       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.
