The ascent is off trail scrambling and most people will need to use their hands. From the top the course follows a soft double track along the ridge and back down the southeast face. )
Part 2 (This section follows mostly single track with a few sections of double track and one off trail section climbing up the north side of Squaw Peak. It descends on a single track trail. Both the ascent and descent may still have snow on them during the race. )
