       This is a single black diamond, not a double black!! Especially the new variation. Go hit Gargamel or Upper PHD if you want a real double black.

       Good Trail but I have to agree with the other guy here in my opinion it's a hard Single Black not Double Black good fun though!

       I agree with the above commenters about the difficulty. Please remember that difficulty ratings are relative to the region. Hey Bud has ride arounds for the senders (rock, creek gap) and the remaining steep chutes are easier than, say, the ones found on Crazy Train next door to it.
