Climbing access to IMBA Smart (A.K.A. Middle Powersmart). Not too bad of a climb up to the junction with Grin & Holler, but gets a bit steeper just before the junction with IMBA Smart. The blue rating is likely for those descending the trail, not climbing it.

Access Info

Ride up the main road past the Sorca shelter at the top of Pseudo Tsuga. Follow the signage for Skookum across the new bridge. Starts right after the entrance to Fred.
