Nope the winch would pull it into that big rock, we tried it. I climbed way up the hillside, but all the rocks I could hook to, to get a good pull, looked like they would tumble down the hill. We actually winched several rocks down to try and make it do able. Screwed with it for atleast an hour and a half with it. Tried stacking rocks, just thew climb was sandy and couldn't get the rocks to stay put, would spit right out.

Some pics of a lil Cougar Buttes obstacle, called Georgie's crack. Best part is you can camp right next to it

Here are a few shots of Trent crawling up "George's Crack"... Wish I would have had my camera with me when Dirtman13 did it too. A very cool little set of obstacles.

I agree art I just need new locations to wheel to keep things lively. We've found some new trails to try out so things are getting exciting.

Trail breaking is a whole lot of fun isn't it?

It sure is, funny ideas come to mind when you run into a huge waterfall and have to find a way around it

Had a fun day on Jack and Jack north today, my compatriots turned it into a winch trail, but fun none the less. Whole lot of winching and 3 unseated bead and the day was done. Entertaining to say the least, they all were most excellent good sports and I knew it was going to be an interesting day from the get go so just rolled with it and had a great time BS ing, helping my Dutch friends with a bit of spotting when they really started to get in trouble.
Started at 11 and we were back at the bridge by 5pm'
Even found a lil spidey friend
Working on uploading a few pictures

Actually learned something today pouring some Coca Cola on the rim just before you try to seat the tire seems to make it quite a bit easier
