Nice Boyette pics...  The one you were trying to show us does not load up for me.  But you may have the wrong link.  I like DSC02638.jpg cuz it is my nemesis.  I will conquer that little climb soon.

Yeah that little clim on Upper Lochness gets me almost everytime.  The trick is to hit it with enough momentum to get past the mid line where the rocks will hit your pedals.  Then just make nice circles and you either make it up or end up with legs like mine bruised and unshaven!!

Which mag is that?  That is the Hart Break Ridge trail right on the roots we all know about.

Momentum, momentum, keep pedaling, follow Gregg.  If I could just remember that when I'm on the trail.  Just slap me if I don't do those.  I'll get it sooner or later. ;D

You guys are whack...
As the paper indicated "squiggy classic" ::) that section is at the heart Break Ridge, the infamous roots which "they" added small rocks to be "rider friendly" and "rideable". 8) 8)

"they" did add small rocks. The rocks have disappeared. It has always been ridable.  ;D ;D

Yep, just follow Gregg. I'll be the guy right in front of him!!!!!! ;D

Just kidding!! Those roots look worse than they are- just make sure you leave some space between you and the rider in front of you, stay to the right side, switch to an easier gear, keep pedaling, and un-weight your handlebars. If you do those those things-you should be able to clear that section with confidence. Oh yeah, and follow Gregg (and I) if we can ride it on our lousy hartails-so can anyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
