  • Global Ranking

Steep and gnarly trail with a big reputation. Lots of steeps, rock rolls and chunder with no easy way around.

The famous woodwork on the trail is now mostly decrepit and replaced with new trail.

A long and highly technical ride that's pretty isolated. Exercise caution.

Perfect right now, surprisingly dry. Lots of rain to come, however, which will change things.
