Taking a left at the bottom of Jackasaurus/Intermediate and following the lower line will flow into Grommies. Trail doubles back on itself through some banked bends and bermed corner, sidling across the hillside over a small off camber rockface and down into some larger diameter looser turns over some kickers and the odd step down. Transitions into more flow with one fairly large G-out, before connecting up to the climbing track.

 Will take a few rides to learn. Some steep rollovers to get the heart racing and the drop-off may stop you in your tracks like it did me (look right for the chicken option).
