Thanks,

With a stock 100 and no sliders you would want to be an experianced driver. So you would need to be prepared for some trail damage.

Kinda thought it would be out of my league after doing some more reading. Don't care for body damage quite yet. Very much a rookie. Pretty much the most challenging I have done is go up the forest service road probably most of you take down leading out of Carnage Canyon (near Boulder). Not exactly difficult, but that is the most I have done, other than some rocky roads such as the 4x4 road at the sand dunes. Will wait until another group run does something a bit more in my league.

Wow! This run looks REAL tempting. I've never run Chinaman's Gulch. Might be too hard to pass up.

I'm think I'll side with trout14 on this.

I was thinking of giving it a try but as a noob I think I'll wait until the group does something a bit less formidable.

heres a pic from 3 years ago, on one of the uglier NON avoidable sections for those not familiar with the trail.

Nice spot and I bet we could winch that unsightly Mange Mower out of the way and make it really nice!

That's the rock (your rear tire is on) that I ripped my fender flare off on years ago before I had sliders. FYI, - he's running the trail in reverse.

That's right before the real tippy mogul spot by the tree. Wife wanted to go down back the way we came with over 300# on the roof....

Notice the nifty frame flex on said Mange Mower... not to mention, that thing was downright ScaryTippy with soft coils.

The rock is avoidable, unless you are aiming for a real schweet poser pic. Not that there's anything wrong with that... or, um, like I wouldn't.
