Old skidder road that is rooty and naturally technical, with many small drops and tight turns. Roots can be slippery in the wet. It makes a good link-up with Executioner or Lower Oilcan in terms of difficulty, and location.

Access Info

Accessed off Moutain Hwy just past the 6th switchback, exits back on Mountain Hwy.
