This portion of Squamish's Diamond Head climb was built through an extremely successful crowd funding campaign with more than 550 sponsors and contributors. SORCA teamed up with Gravity Logic to get this huge recreation infrastructure project complete. Starting where the existing climb leaves off, it heads up through a BCTS cutblock before traversing NW to about 700m of elevation. After this point, the climb is designed to keep you on your toes; the trailbed narrows and switchbacks get tighter (take them wide early for best results) and it passes through some big trees before crossing the 'Meadow of the Grizzly' descent around 825m. After the crossing, the climb continues and the forest thins before a viewpoint on a rocky bluff, it then joins an old roadbed around 900m.

      Ditch and pile machine construction has created a facsimile of of a mining road. Gets you up there reasonably efficiently, but with zero natural engagement or harmony.

      Hi Jayacheess! Couldn't agree more with your review. The bottom half of the trail was built with a slightly bigger machine and a rock hammer. With all of the rock in the area, the hammer allowed us to build a good size bench and large radius turns and ditches. The upper half of the trail was built entirely by volunteers with a small machine and no rock hammer. The uphill ditches are necessary, but the corners are definitely too tight. We plan to go up in the next month or so and replace the ditches with culverts on the six tightest corners. This will give riders about another foot of turning radius and eliminate the sluffing too.

      Honest review from a donor to the trail fund for this project: The trail is an absolute masterpiece. I'm blown away by how much vertical you get with such a reasonable climb. The amount of work put in is amazing, and everyone involved in the build should be extremely proud.

      That said, I have a critique. Some of the switchbacks during the last half of the climb are extremely janky. They're tight, and the soil falls to an offcamber in to the drainage ditches too close to the radius of your turn. I was constantly sliding off the trail during the switch backs. Mind you, it was my first ride up, but it still seemed overly touchy to hit those properly.
