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.
