More of a hiking trail than anything else. You'd have to be a real sucker for punishment to ride it from the bottom. Most people end up on it having ridden Phat Bastard and then Moc-Assassin and just ride a couple of higher switchbacks to get onto Stupid Traverse.

We all used to ride this to get to Slunt. Thankfully there are better alternatives now.

Hikers, keep going to the Mt Fernie summit.

Access Info

Off Burma Road, just above the heli hangar is a steep dirt road blocked off with concrete blocks. Head up here and then veer right and steeper up as you get to the power line.
