A singletrack climb between Wagon Trail and Switch Blade, that gets its name from a distinctive rock feature near its end. Not an overall difficult climb, but a few difficult climb sections that'll challenge even experienced riders to stay on their bikes.

Mamba calls this one "Deep Vee" on their trail maps, but Rock Taco is such a better and more appropriate name, and the one I heard used by the group of riders that introduced me to it. So we're going with Rock Taco here.
