it was good. the trails were muddy and wet from all the rain. Slickrock was backed up big time. We were the second group to make it there. Infront of use were 4 Rhino's all trying to make it up Slickrock. it took them nearly 2.5 hours to do it as Rigs backed way up on the trail. My group made it up pretty quick. The top was rediculous. They covered the ledge with dirty to it was an uphill mud bog that everyone had to pull a cable to get up.

We got to slickrock Midday on Friday and there were 9 in our group. We were still winching up the twisting mud bog at the top in torrential rain in the dark Friday eve about 6pm. 3 guys in our group did not have winches and I had a 4 door JK strapped to my rear bumper as I winched out. We had to use 3-4 winch points to get us out of that deep muck. One of the most wicked nasty miserable cold nights of my life and one of the most memorable and best times as well. Priceless!

i cant imagine doing that during the rain. Hell it was too slick to walk on Saturday afternoon. One guy in our group didnt have a winch so we had to get someone up to the top of the hill, turn around and run his cable off a snatch block to pull the guy around the curve. A miserable yet memorable time for sure!
