Oh man, I just did that trail last month. HOLY SHIT IS IT TOUGH. GoPros do no justice as to how hard that actually is.

OMG is ever tough! My bike and I were both beat up after that trail. I'd like to figure out a way to get the gopro's to show more depth. This was my first video shooting at 960x720 mode. Don't think it helped much. I usually shoot at full HD mode...

Theres no way with GoPros or any wide angle camera for that matter. The wider it gets the less depth you get.

Did you ever ride the 94 trail at Rockhouse? We went down it... I cant see anyone in the world going up it. Basketball sized rocks with like a 70 degree angle.

Yep, that's what we did too and thought the same thing. We were hoping that whole time we wouldn't have to turn around and try to get back up it. :(

We rode down 199 and then up 151 Friday.

It hasn't gotten any easier,that's for sure.

Could have used a trials tire in my 150 XC
