I agree with @pmachan that Fight Trail is not meant to be easy, and with the granite, falls are going to be more dangerous than other trails that are mostly dirt.
In terms of the the features, I agree that some have had alternate lines added to give them bail out options. I think this fine as long as the existing lines are left untouched for those highly skilled riders who enjoy Fight for this reason. If existing lines are altered to make them easier, then this really defeats the purpose of what the trail was built for. Personally, the sections I find challenging, or have difficulty with, I want to remain that way so I have something to work on each time I ride Fight. Maintaining them and keeping them in nice shape is great, changing them to make them easier is not, but just my personal opinion.
I also think Fight, like lots of other trails in the HRM, aren't maintained as well as trails in the rest of the province so spots like @muddy mentioned get sketchy because unless they become un-rideable, people just keep riding over it. The second bridge on the way in, just before the section @muddy mentioned, is missing a piece. It is a small bridge, and not really that challenging, but missing a piece nonetheless. It has been that way since last fall at least and since it doesn't make the trail un-rideable, it hasn't been fixed.
as for @Cheshiremark, wishing you a speedy recovery. Having separated my shoulder riding a couple of seasons ago, being off the bike sucks but all you can do is heal and wait.
