    Slaughterhouse is a lost cause, I'll post some pictures when I get them. About 75 feet from the highest cattle guard there's a 3-4 foot shelf of ice/HARD packed snow. Unless you've got serious diff clearance, tire chains, and maybe a winch you're not gonna make it. We had to dig out for a few hours today and 285 was a nightmare coming home this evening.

    We were finally able to use the high lift jack to jack the front of the rig up and put a bunch of logs under the tires to get the front axle out of the ice...

    Hiked around for a bit after we got unstuck and headed home.

    Pickle isn't too bad right now. I stopped by this morning after dropping my kid off at daycare. drove in a ways in 4hi and had no issues. I didn't air down or anything...it did eventually get too deep for me to keep going w/out airing down and being serious about it. but I would think with a few rigs it might not be that bad.

    this was coming back down, just above the first obstacle/bypass/pit thing...

    That goes for me as well..I'm chainless. I've got a 99 full size montero on 265/75 16 Cooper atp tires and a locking rear diff. I haven't done pickle gulch but I'm assuming my rig would be able to do it?

    that's what I was going to say. I'm on 35s and would have needed to air down to get further than I tried. it looked a little deep where I stopped. some guys ran it last week and they had a winch-fest, but I also think there was more snow then. it's been sunny and melting the last few days up here, so if there's at least 1 rig with 35's or larger at the front, I would think you'd be fine.

    We ran pickle just a few weeks ago.
    6 jeeps started 5 jeeps made it to the first hard climb with the side out/optional. That was like 1 mile and 6 plus hours and each one took the winch!
    Way to much work. We had snow this week so it may be deeper. The higher we got the deeper and softer it got.

    So Brandon you shouldn't run hackett with out someone who has been in there. The gultches get steep and the rock face are slick when snowy the rock there is not forgiving at all.
    I have been down metberry and long water granted they are easier but the fact is you are new to your rig and will have a newbie with you, not a good combo.....we can run the gultches and cedar mt. Road instead of Illinois gultch.
    longwater rock could be a slick mess.....
