Thanks to the magic of very hard work, Hyper X is once again open for business as of Sep 20, 2018. Thanks FTA workers Primary Descent from the top of the Hypervent climb. Starts off medium gnarly with roots, twists and turns and some steeper little sections. Soon mellows out and the final swoop through Roots Extension is all good easy fun.

       One of our favourites in Fernie - a nice long and interesting descent. Not overly technical but enough to stay engaged and have fun.
