      There are a couple parts that are really dry and loose, which combined with the steepness, makes for traction challenges.

       Start off like a fire road, ascending from Ana's Chute. But becomes a good ole single track soon, with some challenging technical features after a heart pounding climb. Before you get to the top, a fallen tree trunk will drastically narrow the path on the incline. Next, you'll find a dusty, loose rocky switchback turn. You're almost to the rocky edge at the top. I'd do it again!
