    Nice one Brad. The only one I can find is a pic of myself as a youngin' somewhere near the summit. My guess is the cow pasture just off of the auto road, circa 1980? I guess trail signs don't...

    It should also be noted this route is not recommended when it's wet or as an option for descent.

    The fine people here have given you advice, but it seems to be falling on deaf ears. The Great Gulf headwall is as hard as Huntington Ravine. Period. Some may quibble over this, but for a beginner...

    I know Max did it once way back in the day for the Hill Climb. I think he rode it just a few minutes faster than he ran it. (He's run it twice, some 20 years apart). I wanna say all times were...

    BTW, I agree with Post'rBoy and Bruno! :D
    Nice to see you two on here. Brings the humor level up a few clicks, along with the in-yo-face dose of reality.
