Re: Parking & Road Questions

1. What's the story with parking at the top of Motherlode Hill? It looks like a parking lot has sprung up... Is it ok to park there? That land is owned by Gary King. He also owns Bald Rock Cabins ( http://www.baldrockcabins.com ) which are located on the left just before the parking lot. As a court...

I PM'd Shannon to see if it was hers, but have not heard back yet.

Route 2 Right of Century @ Velo Crag

Can anyone identify this route? It is the second line past The Century at Velo Crag. I think the order is The Century > Double Century > This route. There is a distinct ledge above the second bolt and a flake between 3 & 4. The finish is in a small water groove.

Re: Is this going to be in the online guidebook anytime soon

The video claims the routes are "professionally bolted". Who certifies these professionals and what are their credentials? Seriously though, I wonder if that claim might open them or a bolter up to liability if something goes wrong.

Re: Motherlode Hill

Hey, do what works for you, but that has not been my experience. In my buddy's Tacoma 4 low results in skidding gravel. You can "crawl" out in Hi 4 in first gear with no problem. It is a manual, maybe that makes a difference? Here is a third party source: http://www.rubicon-trail.com/4WD101/differen...

Re: Motherlode Hill

Instead of "4 Low" try using "4 High". Low doubles or triples the torque which will actually cause slippage and skidding of your tires. 4 Low is usually for towing and will act more like a 2WD when driving on gravel. Use 4 High and some modest momentum. The principles are the same as in mountain bik...

Yeah, I was wondering what a fall would have looked like after skipping some of those clips.

Korean Climbers Killing It

Looks like some strong Korean kids sponsored by Evolv came through the Red recently. Pretty impressive sends, especially with how hot and humid it was!
