Fantastic trail for the more advanced rider with a little bit of everything: Great viewpoints, numerous rock rolls (including a series of 5 in a row), a few ladders and three short climbs. If it’s too challenging – and the top half is slightly easier than the bottom – you can peel off on AM/PM half way through for a quick downhill. The more difficult features all have easy ride arounds except for the last ladder.

There’s a lot of flow here, although the final climb just after the AM/PM intersection breaks this up a bit as it’s a steep one. It’s a trail to challenge yourself to ride as cleanly as possible and will keep you coming back to it again and again. Thank you Duncan for designing such a great trail

Access Info

Access this by climbing the Lower Microwave Tower Access Road from the bottom of Cheakamus, or through a short climb up from the end of Highline if you're coming from the High trails. Alternatively, you can get here by riding down ~1km from Tunnel Vision

      Bear very close to the trail about 5pm just above the upwards rock roll. Came towards me for a few seconds then went back to grazing. Easy to give...

       This is an amazing trail, a must ride for the confident shredders out there. It is challenging for intermediate level riders, first timers can probably expect to do a little pushing in the steep climb sections as momentum is key but dont let that put you off. The downhill flow is epic! I will ride this trail again and again.

       I found the first half of this trail up to the AM/PM intersection to be super difficult with tons of climbing and wasn’t really sure if it was worth the climb. But after that? Oooooooh Nelly!!!! So good. Little jumps and drops and rolls and slabs and berms and all the cool things about biking packed into one little descent.

       Did the upper part to am/pm. Amazing and eye-opening trail. Need to come back and do the rest.

       I love this trail. Everyone has a different opinion as to how difficult it is. I found it challenging but not scary. For some perspective, I race enduro in pro women’s category and I love tech trails. There are a handful of uphills that I wouldn’t miss but all-in-all, the descending portions make the trail super fun. I love the rock rolls.

       Really Good! Great early season run. Good test of well-rounded ness as DH'ers will want to cry on the uphill portions. But the down makes it all worth it. Something for everyone! I'm not saying anything new except that if you've never seen Flight of the Conchords you should, and the name of this trail will make much more sense!

       This was my first black trail in whistler when I rode it last summer.

      Certainly not for the feint of heart but very rewarding for advanced riders with some great viewpoints.

       Black bear encounter today, the 26 July, 2020 just below the double rock garden roll into the ladder ramp. Mom and cub and we all parted ways happily.
