the first time going down that hill, a couple years ago. I over used the brakes so much I lost them 3/4 the way down. pull on the breaks, no resistance at all. tell ya about taking a chunk out of the seat by biting it with my butt. wheeew, that turn just before the road was hairy. I had to use engine breaking to control that descent without brakes..

Going down with the jeep, probably they had to change the whole driver seat, not just the underwear...

That hill is brutally steep. I'm not sure if I've gone up it or not (I think so) buy I distinctly remember going down that bitch twice on the Husky

yeah it's steep and loose, at least until right at the end with the large rocks as shown in the video.

i'll post some larger pics from our 3 days of riding in a bit, the small ones are all the tapatalk iphone app lets me do.

Great video! That would have had me changing underwear for a week!

We skipped the first giant uphill on the way back by taking artesian spring fire road,then rode the rest of Rowher 4x4 back to the staging area. Still some good climbs and downhills on the rest of the trail, but none quite as steep as that last hill before the road.

Great time today. Perfect weather, great trails , excellent cajun chicken burger at the rock inn... Can't wait to come back! Boarding the red eye back to Canada now. Arrrrgh .... :(
