Scull Coaster is a fun fast flowy descent that can be connected in from Drops or Fred (via some sneaky local shortcutting). Disclaimer, flowy means less jagged pointy rock and little to no blind corners and cliffs.
You will come to a point where the obvious trail turns off left, this is a locals preference as it ties into lower Slabs. The old way carries straight but it is not maintained.

Access Info

From Drops : A near invisible left/back turn below a drop, most will never notice it as they are preparing for yet another huck to flat. If you come to Narnia via an eroded multi-lane right hand sidehill, you missed it but can still get there if you really want.
