Triple Bypass 8-20-2011
 
Thanks Wes for putting this run together!! There were 4 rigs total and we kept a FAST pace, left camp around 8:00am and got back to camp, I think around 7:00pm. We did have enough time to go up to the base of Conundrum peak where the ski team used to practice into the summer. I think my head is going to rattle around for the next couple weeks or so doing this run in the 40, LOTS of shelf road and rocky trails.. Here are some pic's..

The Pathfinder was just down about 200 ft from the ledge. It looked very fresh. Hope no one perished as a result of that. We drove Reno through all the way back to Italian. Pictures do not do that justice there. This was my first time on Reno and it is not too bad technically, but the pictures like I have seen on Traildamage do not show the drop off as looking as treacherous. Also, with pictures you do not get the full effect of the rocks grinding/moving as you roll over them. :bowdown:

I am pulling my pictures off the camera now... will update tomorrow. I had an awesome time this weekend! :thumb:

Sweet pictures! How was the road up to Conumdrum? Did you make it all the way back? Castle and Conumdrum are on the list.

Conundrum is worth the hike on account of the natural mineral bath hot tubs... It's a nice overnight (call it a 'decent' 8 mile out-n-back, it's not super easy) trip and I'd shoot for September into October. I'd even personally wait until the first snow, although hitting them when the colors are changing would be sublime. We did it in September after the trees had already dropped their leaves.

Wish I could have done this one. The schedule change and a nasty eye infection kept me home. :(
