After traversing Ramble On, you hit the wall of roots on the nasty ol' skidder road. Turn left and grunt your way up, up, up. Follow the signposts and zig zag your way to the last cruisy pitch which leads to the gravel road, spitting you out below Executioner. Thanks to the efforts of Arc'teryx & MEC, the top connection was completed in the spring of 2016, connecting the original sections of the St. Mary's climber started by the DNV Trail Crew in 2010.
Work on the skidder has already started and will continue in 2016 thanks to TAP adopter Knight Piésold to lessen grade where possible. Until then, if you don't make 'er, you'll die tryin'

      Very Wet - Root road is back to its former glory, most of the new dirt has washed out. New mud on corners is very wet + boggy

       A note to uphill climbers that a large chunk of this trail was used as a downhill route in the past and will likely be used by downhillers in the future. Keep your heads up going both ways

       Bud - this is an uphill only trail. Do you ever post anything without an agenda against the trailbuolding efforts of the nsmba? Never met you but you seem a bit obsessive and paranoid.

       Do you know the history of this trail? Ie that this was a downhill trail? I've never met you but you seem to read things the wrong way.

       Sure. Doesn’t matter to me dude. I’m just saying it’s a great effort they did to turn this into a climbing trail. It is seriously kickass and a great xc climb option on fromme. Nobody cares that it used to be a DH trail - there are millions of better ones. People don’t ride this down anymore so your comment just seems like you’re tryig to undermine the work to turn this into a climb trail.

       Your opinion is irrelevant and you don't know what you're talking about. You're either Podo or a trained seal or some one else who drank a lot of koolaid. People ride down this trail whatever you think

       Bro. Chill with your fake accounts downvoting my comments and upvoting yours. It’s just a trail. Don’t get all agro because you can’t clean it up hill in less than an hour.

      Chill brother. We’re just riding bikes.
