 Ok, the uphill doesn't justify the downhill though. However if you like slogging it up hills be my guest Smile

 Couple of rocks to roll down into it, and... it's over in a minute.

Compared to the red, yes it's more technical for people used to the red, but I'd class the red as a blue really Wink

 The first section (going down the rocks and roots) is fun, but then it dies down and gets slow after that.

 Nice to have a new section to ride at Haldon, but as said, it's a quick burst of downhill with a steep uphill that's brings you back to where you started

 As others have said. The rocks going in, followed by roots are fun then a mix of rock gardens and roots to shake your fillings out.. a few berms and a drop off that is also just about rollable.. not sure I'd do it again, part of the red prior to this is must more fun to loop up and repeat
