The hardest track in the park until Yeah Gnar was opened in 2017, being a touch more technical than its close cousins Vertigo and Deliverance. Aside from a smooth narrow section part way down, it's non-stop tech downhill with some awkward drops and optional jumps. Everything is rollable and when ridden at modest speed provides a good flowing single track.

If you can't make the first drop off and corner with some confidence then don't go any further as the rest is worse (ie better).

Built by Ricky "Slackboy" Pincott and friends 2002-2003. Actively maintained so expect the unexpected.

Probably a mistake to ride it in such heavy rain - lots of crashes!

Relatively dry, really. Even the waterfall wasn't slippery

Hasn't rained for five days but the tyres still got completely clogged up with mud which made all the rocks interesting. Will probably leave this...

Track is wet. Slippery rocks and parts of the grassy track were so rutted and narrow it made me feel like "Red Leader - Wedge Antilles"...
