An absolute gem of a trail that sees little traffic. Consists of incredible slabs - harder then hueso, boney elbows.
First climb up is a challenge, but can be ridden without dabbing.

1/2 way down the left hand line is recommended. The right hand line is a massive slab - sounds fun, but the consequences are massive.

Ending recently got some work, and is now much better.

 One of the best. Old school gnarly slabs! Less grippy than the other slabs of the highlands.
