Fun trail with entry via a rocky roll over followed by swooping berms, rocky climbs and technical rock features. It connects with Rambo at around the half way point (a Grade 5 trail). After climbing a rocky outcrop, which provides views over Ice Breaker and About Time the trail continues to it's exit on Ice Breaker. The trail has a number of rocky challenges including rocky climbs and rocky descents to test your technical skills.
