Stopped today to check out the high side Doom drop and it really didn't look so bad so a couple of us push our bikes up to the top, stopped, repositioned and then dropped in . I rolled up it a few times but couldn't seem to get the bike pointed in the right direction to deal with the sketchy first step down. Anyone bothering to do the high side drop? If so are there and pointers as to how to make that super sharp turn around the tree? I've seen Krunnch do it a few times but he always stalls out up top (feet still on pedals) leans up against the tree and then drops. Looks like if you keep your bike rolling around the corner and go a little wide you'll end up in the ferns. Btw, we saw an otter playing right at the bottom of the Doom drop. Very cool to watch those little guys and nice to know that it's not only Boyette that has them.
If people aren't really taking the high side due to it's condition I'd love to go out there with a shovel (with trail boss approval of course) and dig out a bit of the back wall so we can get the bike turned around to face the downside. If people are making it and like the challenge then I'll just keep trying until I make it or break something.
Today was a good day regardless because I finally quit being a wuss and hit that gnarly drop on one of the hard options of Moonscape. It's the one towards the end of the high ridgeline that runs parallel to the easy option and just about dumps you out at the grass path back to the parking lot if you stay straight. That drop has been messing with my head for some time since I about killed myself on the last attempt. It did help that I saw a guy hit it last Saturday on a old ass hardtail that barely had any front suspension.
