One-way ascent from the bottom of "Kissing Booth", back up to "Home Brew". This climb has a lot of switchbacks, to help level out the relatively steep grade, but still contains a few technical rock features and a steep roll-down (yes, a roll-down on your way up) that make it pretty difficult. The track is relatively narrow and does not have big bermed turns, so strong pedaling is required most of the way.

Access Info

A small roadside parking lot is available on Skyline Parkway, just west of Haines Road.
