       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....

       if pleasure trail is debated as being black / double black and Rigs in Zen is a black, this is most definitely is a black as it is far easier than both of those trails.
