    Dwine, If you cant get up it, I probably can't either... So we can see if Sevenmile Road is open or something... but I think we'll be OK.

    Badass video. From the looks on the main climb if you stick to the left I should be fine. Doesn't look that bad at all. All depends on what that damn side by sides have made of it....

    I think we'll all get through HAH just fine with careful line choice. It is an obstacle with many options -- choose your own adventure.

    He's taking the difficult line. Much easier to the far left.

    Meeting information is here, or linked from this location -- https://www.frontrange4x4.com/forums...-30&e=1047&c=1

    The link I pasted above is also in the yellow bar at the top of the page for upcoming trail runs. If you intend to go, make sure to RSVP on the upcoming trail run calendar page (the link I posted) so we know to wait for you on Saturday. It helps immensely if everyone who will show up marks "yes" before we all leave the house Saturday morning, and if any "Maybes" update to Yes or No as well. We don't always have cell service at the trail heads, and knowing how many folks we expect to arrive helps to get the run going at a reasonable time and not leave anyone behind by accident.

    That is my video. Heart Attack Hill is not really any harder than the bypass as long as you pick your lines, like already said most just stay to the left. It is mostly just a lot of lose rock and dirt. I just ran the bypass this past weekend with my kid and when coming back went down Heart Attack Hill. The bypass is a lot longer.

    The Chutes don't require 40s or a buggy. I have taken my stock JKUR though it. Body damage is likely though if you are on smaller tires.

    Honestly about 80-90% of it is just a dirt road.

    A good video of most of the bypass.

    I guess I need to see the chutes on a dry day. Last year I watched several built rigs on large tires fail to get up the lower section of the chutes. Even Gerald on his beefy LJ wasn't able to get up the first part. I don't doubt you are correct, but it didn't seem possible with my rig the one time I was there.

    I did the chutes once (2015). I believe it was dry. I don't recall if I had any locker in use (probably??). No body damage and IIRC - not even a "touch" of any rock. Mirrors were tucked in. I had "an inch" here and there. It was easier than I would have imagined (it must have been bone dry ). I should not try'm again - I should keep that magic first experience intact.

    I remember HAH sounding super tough, then I rolled right up it in my Range Rover on 31s. I took the left easy line but would love to make it out again this summer to watch some people take the harder lines.
