Fantastic trail heading from close to La Morella, one of the Garrafs highest points, to Cal Gantxo behind Castelldefels.
Starting with a couple of kms of flowing blue rated trail with occasional lumpy rock sections, it changes to complex rock gardens, then onto loose rock before throwing in a couple of lung burning climbs, hence the name.
The exit trail is perhaps a black rating in one section but it does finish with some large spaced steps which are fun.
Drop the seat and pump the arms, it's gonna be a wild ride.

      Becoming heavily overgrown, hiding a lot of the rocks from sight, making this trail very hard going.

      Some additional large boulders have appeared, assume fallen down from the slope above making it a bit more treacherous going, and I did not stop...
