You know...I’ve never done this trail, for some reason I’ve just never bothered but now I kinda need to do it to see what kind of a challenge it really is. I realize that, like all slickrock trails, there are many ways to do it and some will be much harder than others, I also realize that traction is 100% not a problem on “slickrock” (unless it’s wet or muddy) but even still I know it’s not a pushover trail.

It rates a 6 on the cruise Moab scale, which is a fairly accurate scale in my experience. What’s a 6 mean?

“Roads are difficult with considerable erosion damage repaired just enough to be passable. Water in excess of 12" is possible with mud conditions. Steps not exceeding 24". Tall tires (33" plus) and traction aid devices (lockers, limited slips, A-TRAC) are recommended. A winch would be a plus. Enhanced suspension travel and ground clearance are helpful. Excellent driving skills are recommended.”


*Warning* the music starts out kinda bad and moves into horid about half way in.
