Part way up the route I cross a log carved with FU DNV on it. Is this on anybody elses route? My main problem is I almost always end up following different trails as it's an absolute rats nest on that part of the mountain. ;P
yeah that maze of skid roads are the Peugeot trails that were the common green trails back in the 1980s and 1990s (were even on early maps and people rode up them then down them)
I wondered about the FU DNV log carve too. I have cleaned that section going up before the chainsaw vandalism.
from where the new Skid Road climbing reroute meets Baden Powell, look a little east, then the real challenge begins, more for route finding than steepness, when you go by some Pink Starfish structures there are about four 5-way intersections in a row, but after that keep to the skid road traverses, with short connector short cuts until you are about 200 m before Bitchecutioner, then challenging single track (100% rideable) up to the road. Actually the whole route is 99% climbable (maybe 100% for some fit trials guys)
I hope the official plan is not to poodle path the whole thing and to leave some black diamond technical climbs otherwise it will be back to climbing green and blue downhills during off-peak hours for some technical fun
PS to Rideitall and others: if you end up on a smooth low angle section part way down Dreamweaver, you missed the junction to the original Dreamweaver and are on the climbing route, so give way to uphill riders
