We had a blast. Spring Creek has become a lot tougher trail since the last time I was up there. We were on the trail by 9:45 and at the top past the rock garden at around 1:45. Probably a third of that was watching other groups attempt the tougher stuff...the 3rd obstacle on the switchback seemed to cause as much or more overall problems as the garden. I think the bypass to the worst of the rock garden is as bad as the garden itself was 6 years ago.
I did manage to knock my rear exhaust hanger off backing down off the first obstacle to give it a bump, but other than that it was a pretty clean run. I've been planning to cut and reroute it for clearance, so now it's trail clearanced
The new suspension with 35's was incredible. But this thread remains useless without pics, and I have almost none (always a sign of a good run when there is too much going on to take a bunch of pictures).
