No good pictures, the only issue really is this rock step out the forest section.
The rest is steep but doable.

So looking at the route for Silver/Gold. It seems they will go up the Sandstone White Rocks, down Fox Hole and up Free Fall again.
We get to ride along the top.

It is an interesting, very steep single track about 100meters long. Going down is fine but going up is challenging.

Foxhole    blue
White rocks    purple

I tried yes, 2013, the year where it almost washed away with downpour. We were timebarred early in the race before even working up a decent sweat (hypothetically speaking now :).  However my riding buddies each have a silver under the belt already from 2012.
