Anybody ever done this line before?

This is on Sledge, just past the Z turn. I was playin around on the camo line passing a traffic jam, and Turbrotoy yells out to try this line. I gave it a go, but it got a little to tight for my fool sized rig...wondering if a smaller rig can make it. There were 2 options I could see, either go straight up and over, and down the back side to a 5 foot inverted drop (so I was told, I never actually looked). Or the other way is to turn left and go behind the huge boulder to my left and exit up higher.

I got about 6 feet past this pic before I was wedged and couldn't go forward. I tried turning left, but the rig is too long and wide to make that turn...at least from where I was.

So has anybody tried this before?

Dustin goes that way every time. I've done it a few times myself.

I'd like to see that. Dustin does seem to always be passing people on crazy lines.

Got pics of any creative optional stuff? I love trying lines people don't usually even think of.

Hey nice pic, it was a decent size drop on the other side. if you look closely you can see me waiting for the traffic jam to clear also. Busted the u-joint and yokes, so turning around and getting out of there in 2wd was fun. ill give that line a shot next time im out there

I felt really bad for not offering to tug you out to the bottom. Just started having issues with my clutch (broken bellhousing), and figured I'd better stay with the group incase it got worse and I needed help...hopefully you didn't have too hard of a time getting out.
