TRAIL DESCRIPTION: 

Frontal Labotomy is a steady and moderate climb, it has a few sharp pinch climbs which can be rutted out - to make them just that little bit trickier. The first traverse is generally consistent in gradient, after a right hand switchback the next traverse has the pinch climbs. Save some energy for the end though, the last 10 seconds of the track are the steepest on the whole thing.


GETTING OUT: Exits at  the Shuttle drop off point towards the top of Tawa Rd. From there you can head downhill on Eagle Vs. Shark, Corners, Underbilly, Huckleberry Hound (Jump track), or The Taniwha (National Downhill). Or head a little further up Tawa road to access Billy T and the Department of Conservation native bush trails: Tihi O Tawa, Tuhoto Ariki, Hatu Patu and Kataore.

RIDERS COMMENTS:
A bit of a grunt on the single speed but once at the top it's 'pay-back-time!!" on Billy-T, Te Tihi, Corners or the Hucks.

Just a dull track to get you somewhere. But well made and very easy to ride.

This is a great little track. Love the climb. Only problem is the little ass's that use it as a D/H track. Caution is advised.
