A fun line down the East Wall with an easier entrance and plenty of room to choose your turns.

Description

North Pole is probably the easiest line you can access from the North Pole Gate. The entrance -- while usually fairly rocky -- isn't too steep, and it's wide enough that you've got room to maneuver a bit.

Once you get in, you've got plenty of room to choose your turns, and you can head a fair distance both left and right to mix things up a bit. Once you've made it past the often rocky top section, there's nothing left to do but enjoy ~500ft of sustained 30+ degree turns.
