. It's a cool facility and beats driving to Cali for a road track. From what I understand memberships are PRICEY. They have a full gym there as well as mechanics and shops that you can rent with tools and lifts. I think you can do budget rooms for $80 a night.

It is like a requirement, you have to drive Nurburgring at least once while you are there. I drove it a few times.

Have about mid way thru on the left there's a decent waterfall that looks climbable. Just curious if you'd tried it. I'd never done it in daylight till yesterday so never noticed it. It's between that narrow climb with the cliff off the left and the last canyon before the mine. That open area in between that's kind of a wider wash.

Yeah I have. It was kind of hard for me to get up it due to smallish tires.

I think I just figured out what waterfall you are talking about now. The one you are talking about no I have not gone up it. It doesn't go any place. About 100 yrds in it stops at a 30ft wall.

I'm headed to Alamo this weekend. Not sure if I want to drive my **** heap out there or if we should take the challamander and get there twice as fast with using 1/3rd as much gas all while being cool and comfortable.

Can't go exploring dirt trails and **** in the chally. Well probably can't in my jeep either since it sucks but you know, the spirit is there

The climb I saw would be a pretty gnarly climb but it looked very doable and was 100% rock with no sand to slip on... It looked like it would be a double climb with a small flat between the two climbs. Not sure I'd want to come down...

I believe I know which climb you are referring to Khris, we tried to get David (Wrangler93) up there but it was just too narrow. It's very deceiving.. Doesn't look too hard, but when you start getting into it, you lean too far to the driver and it bashes your windshield channel or roll cage into the wall. That is IF we are talking about the same area
