Slower, technical decent to test your balance and your handling in tight, rocky turns. Includes multiple rock gardens and rocky step downs.

Bottom section is two-way and does have some B-lines to avoid some of the very difficult rock gardens.
A-Lines are black diamond, very difficult. First time riding, stop, look and walk to check - take the B-lines if not confident.

Access Info

Bottom section is two-way and is accessible via junction with Whiptail, or if climbing, via entry off Klewarra Boulevard behind Riverside Ridge housing estate.
