      https://youtu.be/2IUE-W1JW1U Watch this to see how it went. Needs some work on the switchbacks to fill in a couple sections.

       Yeah, maybe not a double black. A single black at most. It does kind of sneak up on you though, coming right of a really easy section of Jem. Really easy to hike it if you want to.

       I'm a novice rider and this is completely ridable - no drops, no big rocks really. There are 2 tight and exposed corners that you have to navigate but then you can just ease on down. Its very short so it was a great opportunity for me to hike back up and try it a few times till i could nail it. Not a double black at all.
