Adding a little to Sledgehammer

There was lower sledge - before the mailbox, middle sledge - to the bail out, and upper sledge...and now there is more

We first ran this a couple years ago when I got distracted from prerunning for KOH 2009. It's a small short valley just past the end of upper sledge that cuts off to the left. It's pretty short with just 3 spread out obstacles, but they are plenty of fun. I will definately be adding this to the end of all of my runs beyond the mailbox.

Don't really have any good pics of the entrance, but this is a view from a little ways above it.

And the end. The pics dont do the trail justice as usual. The Yota had to winch the last couple spots, and we didn't exactly walk it in the buggies either.

We've nicknamed it double up. No idea if anyone else has run it before...

With stopping for photo ops and spotting/winching the Yota, it took us a little over an hour. I would expect it to take 10-15 mins with the buggies running our normal pace.

Whats up Ben! The Troop'ota can be seen driving around Ventura. Still needs some skid plates and tube work before it sees the Hammers. But he is getting close.

Good deal on the tow rig man.
