French Creek:

TheJeepGuy Walks it.


Ron doesn't.



*#^[email protected] LAYLA! She found a dead Elk and rolled in it. OOOH I was so pissed. She REAKED! Got some Fast orange and scrubbed her as best I could.


Nate's (00RegCab) Rig parked while we winched Ron out.



And then I am missing a BUNCH of French Creek pics cuz I went to help Troy fix Ron's busted CV. (Hoping Melanie has pics)



MrDoug got through just fine!


As did Scooter (Josh)

Ike didn't like the tippy line we had him on the root above French Creek!


MrDoug acted fine with it.


Stryper had the SA line dialed in


Rigs coming up to Holy Cross City

Cleveland Rock:

One of the Jeeps in front of us made many attempts and finally made it.


Kinda fun watching him go down! (Tippy)


Shawn (theJeepGuy) Unstacked the super-highway that had been stacked from jeeps before him.


So he had a MUCH harder time because there was no stacked rocks. He gave up after a respectable few tries.


Layla, all clean and fresh from her Anti-Dead Elk bath managed to completely tangle herself while watching.


John, (Stealth4x4) didn't drive 14 hours NOT to at least try Cleveland rock!


The Strap crew:


Scooter got the Munny award for making it up (2nd time that week) - I have lots more vid of this!


The way back down. MrDoug on the Root!


Nate (00RegCab) lines up


Glad Ron's new shoes were nice and grippy!

Ok I need to go through my vids and make stills of the cool-ass wheel stand pics we got going back down in french creek. I will do that tomorrow. But for now, here are the stills I already have ;)

00RegCab and Mr Doug


MrDoug had some sexy wheel stand action!

Looks like a good hard run with a fair bit of crawling. I'll be interested to see the Mosquito pics - in the interest of time and the unknown I bailed on it coming back home Friday (and still got home late doing what we did instead).

You would make mosquito. There are a few rocky spots that would make you nervous, but you would make it without issue no the less.

It was more the rented stock Nissan Pathfinder my parents were trailing me with that I was worried about after reading the Traildamage description of a section where 'stock SUVs may get turned back here'. The time thing not knowing how long it would take to get over and the potential of having to come back down the same side and just lose the time was the big thing, as they wanted an 'early evening' before driving back to IN the following day.

We saw a stock first gen tundra up there and a stock full size chevy, so i am sure they could have made it. But you are right in leaning twoards the side of caution in my opinion.
