depending on how much stuff I can get done around the house between now and then, I may be up for this. What time you thinking of heading up?

It wasn't bad at all. Depended on how much rain comes through the night before.

It was somewhat dry the night before we went up. But that still left us tracking up damp sand onto the first obstacle which didn't help with traction. Still, no one in our group had to strap or winch. Just straddle the V notch to the left and cut it right towards the top and you can make it right up.

Oh, and be sure to air your tires down more than I did. I tried going up the middle with way too much air in my tires and didn't get any traction.

Looked a little stiff there. I need to sit down a ton anyway to break these tires in some more.

Re: Spring creek 8-14?

Yeah, I aired down to 15 or so before leaving camp in Empire. Drove all the way to the trail head. Double checked the pressure later in the day and it was up to 18. Definitely should have checked pressure when I got to the obstacle.
