    Default 26 August (SAT) - Holy Cross - Let's go!



    I would like to get out and see Holy Cross, contemplate Cleveland Rock awhile.

    Anyone been yet that would like to lead us up?

    Anyone else have any interest?

    Saturday 26 August

    I'm going to have to pass. A little more extreme for me than I'm comfortable with being my rig is also my daily driver. Trail rating is moderate to extreme and I can see why with a couple of the listed obstacles such as Tippy Tree or Cleveland Rocks.

    Yeah there are some tough spots, I'm planning on ending my run at Cleveland rock unless I can catch a ride over it!

    Not going solo though so it might be a bust altogether.

    Cleveland is totally optional (and totally scary). You go up past the city to get to it. The hardest part (IMO) is French Creek. It seems like every time we go, there's people broken in the crossing. A good line is mandatory through there. (Wish I could go with, love that trail!)

    Thanks for the insight Heather. I feel like I could get up Cleveland rock, but getting down, nope, no way.
    I'm super interested in wheelin' this trail. If I can't get a partner though, I'll scrub this plan and hopefully get up there later.

    Down is easy. You basically just slide down on your rockers.

    That angle though is what gets me, nearly straight down.
    Just going from what I've seen in vids, I'd be the one to flop right on over, long ways, ahah.

    The nice thing about it is there's no cliff to roll off of (at least not unless you're super snugged up to the tree on the far right, and that's not a huge cliff).

    Looks like a blast..... but only if one has a Jeep Rubicon or something built and big tires! I'd damage the crap out of my new truck on this one ;-/
