Hmmm, that's got me thinking. Lets turn Espresso into the Fromme climbing trail…most of the grade should be achievable by mere mortal climbers. Just need to hook into the Dempsey climbing trail and Penzoil and the job's done!!!
(Yes, I'm serious…)
As good of a climbing option (selfishly) that Espresso could be, it is way more valuable to the community as a true-Blue level descent that doesn't otherwise exist on Fromme.
It is unbelievable how many people ride this trail (and how many people ride this trail exclusively of the higher Fromme options) and shows the demand is there for less aggressive options. It really should be marked descent only (as it is really only safe to climb at night when you have advanced warning of other riders coming and limited usage).
Mean People SUCK! Nice People SHOVEL!
