Only issue I see ken with white knuckle besides the pucker factor is the underbelly of Rachels truck. I forgot if she has skids or not. If so, then I think her truck would be fine on it. If not, you run the risk of serious damage to the transfercase.

White Knuckle is significantly more scary than Wipeout Hill. You'll want a strap.

Good point. I don't have a t-case/belly skid yet and took a couple of shots in the vicinity of the t-case that had me concerned. I have got to figure out how to get one on there. My poor little stock t-case "skidplate" looks like it has been chewed up by a dog.

I agree with Isaac that with all the other experience around there that she should be fine.

[quote=Bighead;133520]After that first hill I was wondering what I got myself into..."if that's the first obstacle, what's the rest like?" I thought the rest was pretty fun with the exception of the pucker factor White Knuckle Hill forced me to experience.

/QUOTE]

I don't want to down play upchuck either... the First obsticle, Upchuck, and White Knuckle are the ones that get my attention, but for anyone that has never run the trail, it is definitely worth it... and you get to have lunch at prostitution arch!!!

I absolutely hated the first hill on BTR. So much so I don't want to do it again. Everything else was a hoot though, including White Knuckle!

The climb before White Knuckle (forget the name) definitely got my attention, as the front of the Chili got REALLY light - more so than anything on Hell's Revenge. I had do air down just to get bite without hop at the very bottom (which is something you do NOT want. It would be pretty terrifying to do a Randy on that hill).

I’ve run this trail at CM twice and as Gary said we always turned around at the end without running down White Knuckle. We watched the big guys go down it and up. It didn't look that fun to go down to me and I sure couldn't come back up it and stay with the group.

She will have a blast on the rest of the trail. Bypass hi-dive (again not much in the fun dept.). Upchuck is easy with the right line. With Rachel’s front locker she won't have a problem with the first obstacle. So I would recommend it to her.

If you turn around at White Knuckle you're missing out on a great section of trail that goes through Hunters Canyon.

Most trail leaders will take the whole group down White Knuckle and finish the trail. It's a scary drop, but you guys did that big ledge on Steelbender -- it's not much steeper than that.
