Middle climbing section but can be used to go down as well. Just a bit more difficult and steep compared to the main climbing trail. Berms make the up and down easy to carry speed through the turns. But not really intermediate down, pretty smooth, just a bit of a grunt up.

       Certainly not a blue, especially compared to other blues right next to it. This isn't even a difficult green, it's just a little steeper than the green up. Nothing special, don't ride down unless you've ridden all the others down first.
