Great descent down from the Summit. Was a bit of history as before Northface was complete there was only Ridgeline to ride down (Advanced descent) otherwise it was the four wheel drive road or Zac's track which took you way down the other end. Starting to get fairly rocky and top end of Intermediate grade

    Great down hill ride with some nice swooping curves with high berms. Some loose stones to watch out for.
