A technically challenging trail which is a different beast depending on which direction you ride it. In the yellow direction you maneuver a narrow elevated curvy bridge into a rutty section, crank up tight switchbacks and then fly off a no-consequences 2-8 foot drop depending on how you ride it, then brake for an ugly rutty section, carefully line up to passage several skinny bridges over small rocky gullies and take a quick slingshot structure back onto Phaser.

Beware of the narrow bridges over rocky gullies. This is an ADVANCED trail, and I have seen incompetent bikers crash off the bridges and one crushed his helmet. Take the trail at your speed please.
