From either direction, Rock Pile has several challenging features. From the intersection with Trail Head II/Tom Cat/Steve's Bowl-A-Rama up, there is a punchy, rooty climb with a 12" rock step up to navigate. After a bit of bench cut climbing with roots, there are some smallish rollers with roots and drops. From the other direction, the roots in the rollers are 8 - 12" step ups.
