    Awesome pics. That is beautiful country up there. I'm glad you finally made it over the water fall.

    edit: never mind, man. i looked at some of the other pics. woah. nice ledge-climbing

    that looks pretty cool, but is that obstacle steeper than it looks in the pic or is the hard part loose/slippery rocks and water? i've taken shots of some really sweet hillclimbs and stuff that ended up looking tame in pics. only we offroad guys can appreciate what's really being done.

    It's so easy to flatten out the pics..I here yah...
    I have some better ones..

    The waterfall is pretty slippery...LOL....it should be refered to as slick rock..
    Also, once one rig challages the trail, it stirs up some mud, making it even slipperier.

    That hill/climb is somewhat steep. The slick rock ledges that you have to climb over are 2-3 ft. tall. they are always wet(hence its a water fall. lol) and the incline can get scary! I had my old green Jimmy(K5) standing up on the back tire carrier on that hill once. Almost had to change my underwear! :haha:

    yeah, the shots from other angles assure me that's one obstacle i'd have to find a bypass for. mine wouldn't make it. my lack of tire size alone, would hurt. nice pics.

    I love these pics, you can definately tell the angle, most time pics don't do the trail justice, not this time it is very evident how hard that would be.:eek1:

    I've seen your 'bumping' style, your skinny pedal is about 10 inches wide!:haha:

    My skinny pedal gets skinnier with age. :D

    That waterfall is pretty steep, but as Jerry mentioned it's not that bad if you get the right line. I've seen Samurai's with one locker and 31's go up it. But also as mentioned the difficulty can change pretty quickly if a chunk of rock gets knocked loose.

    So at what age does all this madness end? I've been wrenching since I've been 14. I am 40 now and am picking up hummer wheels this weekend, it doesn't ever stop!

    How's the K-uggy doing. Any recent pictures.

    You Tiretown dudes ever visit Haspin Acres near Cinni?
