There's a reason we kept "classic" in the name. Suggested climbing routes up are the main tower road to Cows with Guns onto Naked Pistol. Veer left towards the shaded side of the hill underneath the cell tower and then enjoy this most classic of flowing singletrack descents. Then go back up for another lap!
