Big Drop fixed
« on: October 13, 2012, 09:23:16 PM »
We worked the edges of Big Drop today to make it less precarious.  Let us know what you think.  Also the climb up halfway through Sidewinder next to SWAMP Thing was reworked.

We've been chasing a bunch of eroded sections like that and ones that hadn't got quite so bad yet.  Slowly we are getting to all of them.  Glad to finally have BD behind us.  Very soon we will open Ridgeline - ALMOST there!!

Haha,your probably rignt  :o, or maybe him wearing a chest protector, or some hay bails tied up around that tree, or just hitting the breaks a tad going up the mound at the bottom of big drop so you don't launch it outta control like he did...  ;)

The tree should be beremed so you can rail it.
Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.

Or knock it over and make it flat so you can carve it.
