A more difficult line than the switchbacks, this begins with a large rock roller with an ambiguous landing and the choice to go up and over the big rocks in front or around to the left, with both choices leading into two steep chutes that rapidly scrub off approximately 50 feet of elevation. A brief uphill turn to the left and then up and over some more rocks, followed by two drops or rollers depending on your speed. Follow around the next set of rocks, through a tight spot, and then up and into great position to drop into Angelo's Ashes.
