Super-tough climb taking you up towards Slunt, and higher sections of Mount Fernie. The trail eventually becomes pretty much unrideable toward the end (maybe a handful of trials riders who also have three lungs might make it). So, when you get to the Moc-Assassin turning, turn right and it will take you across to Moccasin, up there, and onto Stupid Traverse and you have a totally rideable way to the top of Lactic and across to Slunt.

 I am glad i "rode" this trail...so i NEVER have to do it again. this is not a ride so much as a bike push path. Totally not worth it. Better to ride up the bottom of s-bomb and ride brokeback. whatever little you gain of Sbomb by is not worth the push a bike experience - unless you LIKE taking your bike for a hike
