Steep and fast, the trail can be ridden on anything 6" travel plus, but definitely rides nicer if you're pinned. A couple of Big hits (non-mandatory) add a mix of fun to an otherwise concentration-intensive experience. Big slack DH bikes recommended.
See Aaron and Dean's 'Spring Cleaning' video for inspiration.
