I immediately winched up son of rock pile. Kurt and I decided that early on. I guess rock pile has broken down a little bit in the last couple of years, and may actually be a tad easier these days.That wasn't like the rockpile looks to me, so I better watch some videos and join the fun!
Ok, thanks for that information.I immediately winched up son of rock pile. Kurt and I decided that early on. I guess rock pile has broken down a little bit in the last couple of years, and may actually be a tad easier these days.
Unlike the chute, every obstacle on Pritchett has a winch anchor. All of them.Total newb question, is Pritchett or parts thereof more difficult then the Chute??
That was extreme!
The Intimidator is the spot with the big rock that forces you to drive real close to the edge of the trail.
Yes, that was way easier than the chute. The Intimidator is basically hug the wall, watch the spotter and drive through.
I would be down! I have to miss blazer bash this year because I'm having a kid and the due date is the weekend of blazer bash. I tried to convince her to have the baby on the trail or just somewhere in moab and she was less than amused.Who would be interested in a deliberately paced Saturday run through Pritchett? Call it Group B, with the assumption that the more tube-framed among us are running ahead in Group A.
I'll drag my buddy @Spork929 into this one since it will be his first drive of the trail (we ran the suburban together, last time). Having run it once among a decently equipped group of 18 other jeeps, I can tell you it's a full day of wheeling, but a memorable one. I didn't have to beat on my truck to get it done; just steadily working the obstacle with good spotters, making use of every inch of suspension travel, and I pulled cable three times (chewy, rocker knocker, and rock pile). If we keep our group to the standard BB limit of 5-8 trucks, we'll be set for a fine day in the Canyon, with enough time for everyone to work the obstacles.
Afterward, frosty cold snacks will be on me. I'll import from the finest brewery in Dallas, as I do each time we go to west.
Tagging a handful of folks I think would do this trail way better than my junk (this is clearly not an exhaustive list):
