It was an abandoned forgotten, left to rot trail in 2009.
D. Joseph decided it was worth reclaiming. Boggles the mind to think it was left to die.
Fun steep technical trail, with options galore. Also some fun slabs.

Of note is the finale slab at the end on the right - which used to be ridden with v brakes.
One of the best in Squamish.
