When a trail goes from hard to fun

For the past few years we’ve been skipping the first section because the really good bit is the descent - so why do the first segment at all? Especially when it is so full of janky stuff.
This afternoon we tackled it and had a great time.
In five years my reaction went from “can anyone enjoy this?” to “that was so much fun!”

Proof that keeping at it is worth the effort.
