Description

This is a fun technical climb through boulders. There are many steep rock climbs that will show you how sticky your tires really are. There are a couple of section where the trail seems to disappear, but look for the cairns to mark it.

30 foot steep rock ramp (descent) just shy of "slot machine" along Black Jack.

Crawling over another massive sheet of rock working your way up about halfway to Black Jack. Vistas are incredible and the rock is unreal.

Looking back south over Raspberry Ridge trail ... already in a zone.

You wouldn't know this was a trail without the cairns along this rock mesa, but an amazingly organic, challenging and scenic ride on way to Black Jack trail.

Fun, funky climb. Hardest part is finding the trail about half way up. Go left where it doesn't seem obvious. Good warm up for Blackjack.

About as cool as really technical climbing gets. Love the little wall ride feature.

Super fun somewhat technical slickrock over granite fields. Enough trail between slickrock to recover. Would do this again and again.
