How difficult is Wipe Out Hill?

If you have been to Moab and have ridden Wipe Out Hill on your 650+ tell me how hard you think it is. Assuming you rode down it..... : This rating would be in relation to anything else you have ridden anywhere on your 650+.

On a scale of one to six, one being a straight forward gravel road and six being the gnarliest thing you think you could ride on your 650+ tell me your rating by participating in this poll.

This is one of the most specific polls I've seen on ADV.

IF it is what I think you are referring to I give it a 3.

That said you may be referring to something other than I think... ? Was it called "Wipe Out Hill" or something different in 2002?

Yeah I'd approach it with a little less abandon than "Shep" did on a big bike.

He's been bucked off too many horses to be scared of it or show prudence.

Bump again.

This too may actually be a social experiment.
