that was a long tuff loose climb
Great ride with Ethan, fantastic views and incredible single-track, I would recommend this ride to anyone who likes thin single-track. Prefect weather, light winds and very cool temperatures. I will post videos on YouTube in a few days.
With LTV
Yes it is worth the trip. I had a hard time finding and staying on the course but I get lost in Casper's. Its more like Going up Trabuco then Holy Jim. Loose shale rock and long steep climbs. The fire road section at the top is like the wall from Holy Jim to Trabuco on Main Divide maybe harder! As far as clockwise/counterclockwise The rock gardens going up as posted are rideable the other way would be lots of hike a bike.
I had to do a lot of hike-a-bike. Great views from summit.
