That`s a pebble. We show you our easy rocks.(The ones we don`t have to clean out) We are like any of the rockies that have walls 100` plus tall! And yes we have the green slime rocks also. Can you say Taos ski valley? We start at above 9000ft. Bring a chain saw, then try riding at 10000 ft plus on `real rocks!

I have never ridden the Ute cup. I need to do that, before they quit holding it. That's American Flag mountain north of the Taylor Park area. We rode our big heavy pigs up there. I was gonna say we splattered up the East wall, but I don't think anybody would have believed me.

American Flag Mountain outside of Crested Butte! Nice shot!! Sipapu area can get pretty close to that elevation, but not quite!

I've been going out CO for that last 8 years to ride, but always on regular dirt bikes. I need to take my trials bike and do the UTE sometime.

Pull any and all loose nails. Will chew the shit out of sidewalls. I'd recommend filling the gaps, or only crossing against the grain, even the edge of the planks could rip a sidewall if you drop into it. Probably wont stand up to any hits from the skidplate, so I think you're on the right track. Might build the platform so that you can fill it with rocks or dirt so it's stable.

For that matter, just toss them out randomly on your yard, and practice floating or hopping the tire onto them etc. You could build an expert section if you put the ribbon in tight.
