I agree 100% .I ran lower Helldorado , and that was an awesome trail . Upper Helldorado however shredded my samurai and I didnt make it through the narrows . The buggies had a great time on it , but unless you are willing to accept major body damage I would suggest running something else .

Go out there and check it out , the drive in on Strike Ravine is fun and you can look and see if you want to run Helldorado . If not park and watch everyone else run the trail which in and of itself is entertaining .

This is a good sampling of what to do on the gatekeeper... and what NOT to do... looks like the spotting was setting most of them up a little to far passenger, looks like if you DON'T send the L/F into the air then the line isn't that good, if you do sent it into the air, take the photo, and ride it out. watching the chicks was painful... 2nd gear!!!!! What in the HELL! The yellow TJ schooled it.

Little bit of the squeeze... Looks like you want your L/R as close to the wall as possible, and your L/F as far away as you can get it.... for the best angle, then straighten out as you come up.... window frames, mirrors and fenders at risk here.
