      It's actually a trifecta of the infamous Value Added, Penthouse, and Larvicide.

       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.

       Great trail. Bit of a climb up but worth it. Also a good trail to lead into penthouse.

       Ridden most places in BC and can say this is not a single black, cream puff in pemberton is much more of a single black in comparison (with double black optional lines). A single black is Rupert, Pamplemousse and entrails. I went into this trail thinking it was a single black and had to walk 90% of it.
