An easy warm up to a strenuous climb that gradually becomes steeper and finally tops out mercifully at Lakeview chair at Alpine Meadows Ski resort. Descent is technical sections followed by top speed straightaways which finally calm down a bit at the bottom of the Scott Peak trail. The Rim section known as Rusty's is one of the area's most fun flow trails. Then back down Rawhide. Watch for pedestrians.
