Good diversion on the black route and not too far off the red. Steep near the top and there's a short steep bit near the end. Middle bit used to be a lot slower and trickier, with off camber roots etc but is probably more dangerous now since it's so fast and flowy Ride it from the mast, down Carl's Lane and into Deliverance to the point where it turns up to Redemption as fast as you can if you want to get an idea what a Tweedlove or EWS stage is like. One of the best trails at GT, a stepping stone on the way to riding the harder trails in the valley.
