Long climb up Pneuma with some rocky technical sections near the top.  Then a steep ride down SHAFT.  No drops or stunts on SHAFT, but still an intermediate level downhill.

I did this as part of a 30k trail run loop yesterday, continuing on Moose Packers and Ridgeback then back across Elbow. it was a nice way to get in a bit of elevation without feeling like you're climbing super hard, nice and windy thru trees etc. Some tougher technical spots near the top where it was so rocky it wasn't runnable for me.
I would give the full loop a 4 or 5 star just for trail run enjoyment and for percent of runnable segments, but the Pneuma segment just a 3 start or so. Having said that, I'll definitely come back to it.
