      Finished the restoration of the original hard line which was eroded and destroyed by braids undermining it. It’s now much simpler to get across...

       What's the best to route to take here? After the trail do people generally climb back up via GSM or do they return to Severed?

       Best to ride up the climb after to avoid getting in the way of riders descending

       This feature is very smooth. Traverse across the roll, aim down and let ‘er fly. The roll will give you the appropriate speed for the drop.

       The rock roll is very fun! The drop is the best part, though.
