      Sweet awkward hole has developped just before the first slab, at the left turn. Certainly spicy and rideable but perhaps needs a tune-up. ...

       Trail report = "Jun 23, 2015 Dusty slabs"
      I'm thinking that the year round report could include "dusty/greasy slabs", as the main rock slab is always dirty, with a constant fresh supply sliding on to it.
      That would be a rippin' rock section if it could stay clean....
