This trail is, in one word, intense! The trail has super exposed section on ladders, killer views, and is just awesome!

Runner Notes

You won't find yourself running much of this trail, to be honest, but the experience of crossing this amazing ridgeline is worth the slow pace.

Description

This trail is crazy intense, crossing an amazing ridgeline with exposed section on ladders and incredible views. Expect highly technical alpine terrain, multiple ladders on exposed cliffs, cables to help assist you one your way up slick rocks, and lots of scrambling. The trail might be short, but it doesn't lack in adventure and views!
