Hi committee,

Just a thought regarding the lower buckle switchback climb.  Now the trails are one way, it would be great to have a short, fairly direct upwards trail from the bottom of the switchback climb to the fork with the IMBA trail.  The switchback climb could then be made one way down.  That would mean you could whizz up, zoom down, whizz up again and continue with your loop. 

It is such a nice bit of flowy, downward pointing trail (which is exactly what Lysty needs more of).  It is a terrible shame for it to be upward only.

Cheers

Tim brought up re-opening the closed section past the gate for this purpose at the last working group meeting and the desire to turn it in to a descent didn’t seem to be met with much understanding or enthusiasm from Renae, but we did agree to review it on site when we look at the comm games rock garden.
