Technical trail demands bike handling skills and is unforgiving of a timid approach. Ridden from top to bottom it has rock rolls, flowy bits, rock gardens and, well, rockyness. Ridden from bottom up, although not recommended, it has some challenging ledgy climbs and not enough room between steep sections. This trail also accesses Brain Damage, which is one of the meanest trails in the area.

Access Info

The start of the trail is found by descending south from the bottom of "Yo-Yo"( the switchbacks down from the towers) for a few hundred feet and staying right
