 I consider this the very definition of a blue singletrack tech climb. There's a sprinkling of roots and rocks throughout, in a variety of shapes and sizes (without getting huge). Some occasional “moves” to punctuate the climb, but no exposure or big skills required to clean them. Lots of switchbacks: some tight, some steep, some bumpy - but none that were all three. The climb is steady, at a very nice grade that you can either enjoy or attack without blowing up. Somewhat narrow, sidesloped tread, but no exposure.
It's a beautiful forest with occasional overlooks...in general the whole length of the trail has good variety in terrain, trail, and views, with a difficulty level (both in tech and fitness) that goes up and down a little, but is solidly intermediate. A great way to get up a hill.

 Nimby was designed by a Sadist. It relentlessly and frustratingly takes you up tight techy steep
switchbacks littered with roots and rocks, only to flatten out and descend the elevation you just climbed. Guess what, to another switchback. Rinse, repeat, like 1000 times. Do yourself a favor and take the FSR. Unless of course you enjoy beating yourself with a stick in your spare time.
