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.
