Very deserving of its black diamond rating. Lower Bitterbrush reminds me of desert riding in southern Utah, almost like a steeper version of UPS/LPS in Moab. Suffice it to say, there are many technical rock features, interspersed with brief patches of singletrack to catch your breath. Many of the rock features have multiple lines, so get creative!
