      Couple of trees down in spots with good line-of-sight. Trail is clearly not used often, but running well in spite of this. Good rowdy fun!

       Great trail with lots of optional slab lines big and small, tough climb to get there. Some steeps to wrangle but nothing too heinous.

       For a trail that says that the name says it all I'd say there was not enough slabs.
      It was about a 70% loamy non slabbed descent which was fun DH but not what we expected.
