The Panda Climb begins at Darwin’s Parking and connects to the Legacy Climb. Expect tight climbing turns with short downhills and look for a couple of fun optional challenge lines. It is a great alternative to parking at the Half Nelson Parking and allows for even more descending with the newly completed Fool’s Gold in 2014. Constructed and funded by Dream Wizards.
