Decided I want to run Ironclads backwards after someone on here posting about it. I figure the best time to do this is during the week when noone else is out. So, I just got home from doing it - Fxxxxn' Awesome! I bypassed the big step and recorded it (lame video below;-).
I took the left fork in the road, going clockwise at the loop. It goes straight up a rocky slope to a large ledge that's unavoidable. Luckily some rocks were stacked to the far right to help lessen the blow coming down and going up. I took it too slowly at first and my rear drivers wheel was spinning (fully extended). Backed up and cruised up better with some momentum but still slipped at full flex - peg legging a bit until I gunned it and the truck lifted itself up onto the large rock! Success!
Steep rocky terrain relentlessly uphill to the top and then I was in the clouds - with about an inch of fresh snow in a couple places. Beautiful and quiet, all alone - so sweet!
Then it was down the steep rocky section until I got back to the bottom - slow going but had a great run. Bypassed the big step again and checked out the best approach and I think with a spotter I could take that big first step on a left angle and be alright...... maybe Saturday
