Nice job on the climb!  I know it took me a couple of tries to get that one the last time I was at Boyette.

That climb gave me trouble for the longest time.  I finally cleaned it last time I was at Boyette.  :)

Thanks for reminding me that I've never made that climb. Haven't tried in a long time so maybe I'll give her another shot.

Ditto, that thing was in my head big time...I kept getting to the top and then bailing because of exactly what happened in the first video..

Lean back and wheelie the top for best results. Typically, you lean forwards when you go over the top, which unweights the rear tire and causes the spin out seen in the first video.
We see the world not as it is, but as we are.

I gotta take the line to the right next time I do Pandemonium. In the video below, I take the center/left line. I still can't figure out the best route. I love that little trail but can't seem to climb the wall out of there.

Do all three.  Go on the right first to the end but don't go to the double track.  Instead turn left and return on the two-way northen (top) most trail to the start.  Then go and do the middle one.
