Lots of shale rock and really tight steep sections. Better as a hike, but not bad to drop down on a DH bike from the GWT (Sagebrush Flat). Several tight rocky cliffs that make it dangerous and/or hike-a-bike.

 Exposure is extreme but manageable. Gorgeous rocky trail and a lot of fun. Average 13.7% grade per Strava. Good times!

 Awesome view! Brutal climb, but well worth it, super fun down just check speed for hikers there is no where to go if you come up on someone to fast.
