What a backcountry ride! The first few miles average over 10% incline so bring your climbing legs. There are also a few hike-a-bike sections depending on legs, lungs and gearing. That said, the climbing really isn't that bad if you just take your time getting to the top.
The descents are a ton of fun with the first few switchbacks being pretty tight/steep/loose. After those it really opens up, especially once you hit the wooded areas.
Even more impressive than the descents are the views. SIMPLY AMAZING. If you've ridden Bangtail Divide, you have to ride Sheep Mtn. I think the views are even better on this ride.
