       This should not be a green trail. Too steep and too may rocks. This should at least be a red trail or a black trail.

       I’d call this generally a blue or possibly black trail. Just one short section that is double black. Other than that, a magnificent trail that’s loads of fun and has unreal views! Highly recommended.

       It's S2-3. I loved it. Technical parts in the upper section. Flow towards the bottom. Amazing scenery!
