JKs Conquer the Waterfall

So 4 of us went out today for once reason: To Attempt the giant 100 yard waterfall. In the end, 3 outta the 4 made it. There were two 4drs, and two 2drs all on 37s except for me running 40s. The longwheel base of our 4drs helped with the ledges, but sucked on the loose boulders. It was vice versa for the 2drs, the ledges were more difficult, but they were much better at manuvering through the large boudlers. We all had some form of carnage including a bit of body damage and smashed lower B-Pillers.

Anyways heres the Pics

Airdown:



Cruisen to the fall:



Here you can see the waterfall in between the mountains from afar:


And heres the Waterfall:


The Gate(we all had to winch):


We walked it first looking for the best lines to take. (ALL our predetermined lines were wrong):

Casey was brave enough to go first. Good move since there was no way I could have led with out a winch for the gate:








Next I went (the extra ground clearance helped immensly as I was able to make it up pretty fast):

Next was Jeremy. He started out quite well getting past the starting ledge no problem. After the ledge is where trouble started. Being wedged in between boulders while highcented was hard to shake. Too much skinny resulted in a slight "POP" and ended his waterfall climb:





After the fall was fun too:
