Area is still pretty chossy. I would suggest bringing a helmet along. Bits of loose rock were flying off the routes all day. Theres definitely some solid stuff, just needs to clean up a bit.

Thanks to those who put the work into the area and thanks for sharing all the route info including a pretty nice pdf/guide. Nov 29, 2012
