This is a stiff climb with a some tight turns and sharp rocks. That said, most of it is just a nice stiff climb. You can grind up it pretty smoothly without getting out of the saddle except for some rocky spots.

The rocks in this area are very interesting. Sharp white sandstone with little rusty embedded pebbles. It makes for some very grippy rock, but will take off your skin like a cheese grader should you go down

 This is a great grinder to access to flagpole some challenging steep sections, and one really good off camber switchback corner that takes some practice to get around. (i've get to do it w/o dropping a foot).

this trail is fun up or down, minimal blind corners, so feel free to bomb it on the downhill
