“Hold on tight! A short death-defying plunge off of the Ridge of Doom followed by some of the best flowing single track on the hill”

The Plunge drops off to the left of the Ridge of Doom about a quarter of the way down. The first 500’ or is extremely steep with some defunked water bars that make it even trickier. It is often in rough shape. Once you have made your way down that part you are rewarded with a long, sweet flow until you intersect the Plumber’s Crack. Head right and exit via Zip n’ Out or take a left and use the lower part of Wapiti to exit.
