      Stick to 3 Saws for climbing. Some steep and rocky sections that would be really tough to ride up.

       Good fun, fast and flowy as they say. A couple sections seemed a good bit steeper and looser than most other blues at the shed. Not enough to call it a black though.

       Flowy up top - but becomes steep and rutted in the middle and ends with a very long, chunky, flattish, killer rock garden to two-gap jumps. Definitely a black most places, probably a blue/black in the shed. But closer to black
