       Lots of scary slabs however the slabs have good grip on a dry day. I would NOT ride this trail in the wet.
      Definitely this trail will get you the highest degree on slabs riding.
      Probs to the builders!!

       Does anyone know roughly when in spring this trail is good to go? Looking at the Reports section, most reports are April/May? So I assume sometime therein?

      Thanks

       Steep rowdy slabs one after another. Tons of fun if you’re up for it!
