Alternate climb to the top. Fun climb with several bridges, lots of switchbacks, and flatter sections to give the ol' legs a small rest while climbing. Easier physically than Uptrack and more technically challenging/interesting. Primarily a climbing trail but can also be a fun downhill. Great down option from the top of the bluff for those seeking a more mellow descent.
