       Not at all enjoyable. Very loose and rocky.

       If you like really chunky, loose, fast terrain, it's amazing!! Lots of fun descending but some hard work also, especially if you are finishing the Monarch Crest. It's hard, you're hard, do it and get drunk!

       I didn't find it to be too moto-y and blown out, but it is a legit tough ride. I had to put myself back together before trying to fire down guts after doing a bit of rainbow
