That was a fun recovery at 5 A.M. Good thing I decided to go back to camp and catch up on some sleep rather then going with you guys, just to be awakend 4 hours later to come get your asses.

If you or anyone in your group ever gets up on the fall and just can't quite get enough traction to get up. Get a couple guys (or one big one) to pull on a strap. It's amazing how easy people climb that with just a little assistance. No winch needed.

here's a video of me doing it

http://s78.photobucket.com/albums/j9...t=S4200627.flv


I ran it again the next day and my tire blew at the base of it so I hammered down and bombed up it.

then while manuerving around at the top with a flat left rear to be a winch anchor I managed to do this

When we ran it during the week prior to the cleanup this year, it was really dug out with no rocks in the bottom just sand. Made for a fun climb with some big 3 wheels going up it.

Last year it was a easy drive up. Its amazing what a little bit of rock in a hole does for a climb.

The rig on the bottom was having trouble on the waterfall so the rig on top tried to go around on the right line.
