Fast and steep with little double at start and rutted tight lines most of the way down. Final rock garden is steep with lots of loose rocks so pick line choice before entry well. Final chute is amazing. Leads on to ponduro or the EWS stage.This version includes the new end, changed for the 2014 EWS round.

Access Info

Marked as part of the back route. Short distance from the bottom of "The Matrix" on the red route.

 Pretty tight, and fairly technical in the wet.

 Probably the best part of the black trail. Huge amounts of effort for a tiny bit of decent downhill.
