A great line connecting Value Added back down to Jack's trail for continued loops in the highlands. From the fork at the bottom of Value Added near the bottom of Penthouse slab, the traul climbs briefly past the entrance to Lavicide and then rolls up and down a bit beforr a quick boost over a rock and then the descent begins with some fast root and rock sections. The trail forks after an old large stump jump, then a slabbier line right or alonger traverse left. The trails converge after a rock garden section to flow through the loam back onto Jacks trail.
