But it looks like a bison tube in the bush above the guy with the blue backpack, so you need to go 528 feet further.

I wonder if 528' away vertically would be an acceptable option...

I am pretty sure it is in Spain, I watched the youtube video and there are a few others of the same place and where the trail is broken and falling apart in places. Scary!

Gary, don't be a wimp, get your bike out and do the trail THAT way. Shocked There are clean shorts waiting for you when you get home.... Laughing


On second thought, the terrain would have to be a 5. Do "DEPENDS" count as special equipment?

I'd seen a TV something or other that showed that. Maybe documentary, or something similar. Ever since, I've wanted to go there. Even though it's "closed", it doesn't seem to be enforced.

Watching the video of this and seeing the trail missing guard rails in places actually made me nauseous....

I do have a climbing harness and equipment but I'm still afraid of heights. Tie me in and I can manage the fear but without a rope heights scare the hell out of me.

Even those steps up the steeple at Holy Hill scare the crap out of me (it's been about 10 years since I was last up the tower...maybe they are better now?).

There is a "highway" I drove in Arizona...can't remember the number...it was a series of mountainside switchbacks. That was scary enough.

I could put "barn quilts" on the opposite wall and the caches along the path! Laughing

The cache container is MAGNETIC!!! I bet no one would steal an ammo can out there.

Changing log sheets must be hell for the CO.

Personally I am thinking if you really want to make this a "challenge" and not just another park and grab, it would have to be a night cache. Don't you think? Laughing
