New two way, steep technical trail that will offer a more challenging, rockier alternative to Batcave and Pinot Grinio. Can be accessed from Magic Roundabout at the bottom. Take care when crossing Bombora.

As a climb it is a technical lung buster. As a descent you will have to work hard at first, especially around the rocky knob in the NE, before a series of challenging corners gradually open out to some faster trail. Watch out for the epic tree roll over near the bottom.
