    This is an awesome pic

    Say what you want about IMBA, they are a great group of people doing the best they can with limited resources.

    I assume this is in BC, can one of you Vancouverpassionites name the trail?

    Great pic indeed. It was on the cover of one of the magazines early last year.

    It's a secret trail. I don't even know where exactly it is, but the name of the trail is "West Van Sucks". No, it's not a photoshop bit.

    I used to be with it. Then, they changed what "it" is, and now what I'm with is no longer "it". And whatever "it" is, is strange and confusing.

    Yowza, how can a trail that's been on a couple covers still be a secret, even to a self-important shore d00d?! ;^D Amazing line, nonetheless.

    What intrigues me is that the extent of the moss says that this is wet more often than it's not. That has to be an interesting line in even the driest conditions.

    I'd heard the ladders are gone. I've never ridden it either.

    Rumour has it that the trail was made by a prominent local photographer, whose work appears on almost any mtb magazine issue you care to pick up. With the help of a few pals, of course. Let's say I kind of know where the trail is, and know who to contact should I really wish to go there. But then, I already know it's beyond my limits from the numerous photos!

    Ken, you are too modest - you would float down that line. My daughter told me "...that looks like a bad landing, Dad. You could break your arm". Hahaha, better an arm than a neck!


    Edit: Sterling Lorence gets the photo credit.
