The old red route climb, probably a bit more of a black graded climb, that meets the "to the quarry" section of the current red route. Finishes with some rocky buts and an optional drop off. Techy corners, rots and more. Inners red are far harder than Glentress reds.

Access Info

When you get to the fire road after the first XC climb (marker post 7 I think), turn left up the hill. You'll see a DH trail cross the fire road. After about 150 yards, there's a trail in to the right. Starts as a slight cli,b, then turns left and starts to be harder work...
