Description

I've only climbed this twice, and never descended it, so I'm not sure how "acceptable" it is to locals to climb this skinny, twisting trail. Whatever the case, this trail is a real challenge to climb. Right from the start, it's a steep slope with a lot of rocks, ruts and turns. The turns seem to be placed right on top of the rocks and ruts, so you have to be nimble and powerful at the same time. For me, pace is the key. Too much, and you'll be out of breath half way up. Not enough, and you'll never get up the obstacles.

Knowing the trail going up, makes me think this would be really fun going down. The technical features will slow you down for sure, but would make for a fun ride.
