This was built as a connector trail from Value Added to Two Stroke. Also works as a good warm up if heading to Larvacide.

At the top there are three different lines. The left hand trail - is the least popular. The middle trail is the main line for riders looking for a single black slab. To the right in the woods is a double black line (signed) that requires a 13 foot drop to a slab transition.

There is also a panty line 1/2 way down that sneaks through the forest on the right. This avoids the sting of the last committing slab role.

 Fun long rockface, slippery when wet!

 What's that line off to the left like? Worth checking out, or partially overgrown for a reason?

 I built it. The left line goes no problem, but the center line and right line are better. Worth doing for the hell of it one day for fun.

 Thanks.

By 'left line' are you referring to the random line up top that appears to circumnavigate the rock face, or the left line of the pair that go straight down the rock face? I was referring to the line that appears to go left of the entire rock face.
