I am unsure of the original name, this is just what I have been told. It does make sense because the initial climb from the DQ table (Classic to DQ) is punishing to the uninitiated.
However, it is an excellent singletrack climb to get to the summit.
From the DQ table (Classic to DQ), proceed straight (or left depending on perspective) down the gully and up the other side. Follow trail.
