I have led Cliffhanger many times in the past. An 80 triple locked will do fine with a good spotter. The tough parts are just after the creek crossing, and the angled shelf beyond that. On the return, the cliffhanger obstacle can be driven right up with a good line, hugging the wall. The exit, climbing out of the creek, can present some challenges (three point turn and ride the rock ridge with driver's side tires), as will climbing out the entry drop down (hint: start center, angle left, hug the left side and come around).

Easy on the throttle, use inertia more than horsepower, and you should be fine. It's a wonderful trail.
