REHIKE VALUE: 2
Started off easy enough, but holy cow! This was a total pain in the ass of a hike. As roller coaster terrain goes, this one was all up and down, up and down. There was nothing dangerous about it, but I prefer the 'advanced' Tripler and Middle ridges any day over this rollercoaster crap.

|Plenty of signs warning us of our imminent death should we go down the wrong path|
|Much of the initial path is lined with seemingly thousands of strawberry guava trees like these|
|It looks much closer than it is, but there's always just one more hill ...|
Hold on, give me a second to think about my last statement...
Nope, I will not be repeating this one.

|Take a guess where this trail goes|
