Description

Don't let the name scare you, the Pygmy Spear Garden is a fun finish to the Funnel and Sunset Ridge. After a storm the pitch will hold some snow and eventually turn to moguls as you skirt around small trees and bushes. The traverse back to Banana Exit begins as the rope line takes you back to the right onto Banana Exit.
