Description

This is the first part of the steepest climb at Rim Nordic. Its inclusion in some of the races at the venue can be especially painful.

Things start out on doubletrack for a bit, then quickly narrows to singletrack as the climb gets underway. Near Highway 18, it levels out in a few spots before reaching the steepest and hardest section. Making things more difficult is a small rock garden riders will have to crawl through.

At the top of the steeps, there's a little bit of descending followed by two big rocks on either side of the trail. The only way to proceed is through a small crack between the boulders. If you're skilled, you can make it through by leaning and whipping your rear tire around!
