Last waterfall on Upper Helldorado

How many people have scaled the last waterfall on Upper Helldorado without winching? I keep hearing rumors that so-and-so did it, but no proof. Has anyone done it? Got pics of their vehicles? Just curious...

Okay, found a good thread - here's what I've got so far:
John Gilleland- 103" buggy, watered tires, unassisted
Ken Shupee- strap help
Greg from Safarigard- 112" Rover, strap help
Curtis McNeil- 100"
Jeff Price- 105"
John from WMS- 125"?, unassisted
Mark from WMS- 125"?, unassisted
Casey from WMS- 125"?, unassisted
Paul ?- 109"
Gibb from Spidertrax- strap help



Anybody fill in some of the gaps above for me?
Chris

Sorry. Forgot about the WMS guys... They were down in Hot Springs a couple weeks back. Here's the 3 rigs:


Right-hand-drive Scout, approximatley 35 feet tall:


Mark has the Toy. He was denied on Too Easy that weekend in Hot Springs, but then, so was everyone except for the the first man to attempt it, whose name I can't remember. (stole pic from their site)

thats Paul Haug, and we went right before gibb, and made it up with myself and one other dude on the strap in 'just in case' mode... the rig hopped right up tho, as did the spidertrax rig.. not alot of assistance. on the strap. there were a few others on the run who made it with just the spotter strap big saturday last year.

There are a LOT of us that watched John do it. Shupee, Jalapeno, Mike from Avalanche, Greg from Safari Gard, Mark Nobles from 4WD and Sport Ute etc...

Clean as a whistle. He nosed up it, noodled for a minute or too and nailed it. Popped over so fast, we all had to scatter to get the fark out of the way.

Neato.

I dunno.. The Popemobile is like 8 ft tall. Do you really think you can wedge it into that hole? I'm thinking you'll just bounce off the rocks on that side with the cage...
