Here are a few Video Clips from Gilmer.. the first couple are the new hill on Scorpion Pass not sure what they call it.. its a bit hairy so we hooked the winch line up just incase things got out of control. Both rigs made it without the winch, we had someone on the middle of the cable pulling up the slack.


The second Group is Sunday Drive we saw wngrog and Eisenfaust coming off this trail, I figured they would get a kick out of this nut we had with us in the Black YJ. Eisenfaust, we wend down Sat Night Live and came back up within 2 min and you were gone.. you should have hooked up with us!

Vids.. most between 600k and 1.4 mb

Notice, my camara man throws out a few 4 letter words from time to time.. just a warning..

Looks like you guys had a great time!
Now I'm really jones'n to get mine finished.
I love going to Gilmer, always have a good time.
Alot of folks say it isn't "hardcore" enough for them, but if you drive right, it's a BLAST.
And some of those hills will hand you your ass.
I broke this on Scorpion pass last November. I can tell you that 150' of cable is just barely long enough to get to the top of that hill from the bottom ledge in one hook.

Shell,

Was that Scorpion Pass we were on? Do you reconize it? Nobody that passed by could tell us one way or the other so we just did it!

Yes, that is what it looks like to me. I broke on the ledge that Hodges "bumped" up...
They had just cut it. Near Chassity's curve, Sierra's Skyview also, I think. A set of 3 uphills. It is kinda on the way to Old Camp, but you take a left near the end of the top road instead of a right.
I remember Clyde saying it would probably get easier once the loose stuff was knocked off the top. :laughing:
I can't wait to get back up there.
