A quick little trail near the bottom of Fromme. The trail features some nice flowing lines, including some reasonable rock faces, a roller-coaster and a big bridge that extends across a small valley. A very fun trail when combined with Upper Crippler or Grannies.

Access Info

From Grannies, make a left turn (East) onto the Baden and the trail is on your right within a very short ride.

The trailhead is fairly obvious and is identifiable by the mostly granite entrance.
