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.

Cut back vegetation. Enjoy the climb now that we can see where we're going again.
