Jose Basin, CA

This run was great, very wet but good fun. I shot some real crappy photos but was raining and not easy to take pics and drive int rain. The rocks are granite, so you know what happens it gets wet. SLIPPERY!!! The white YJ in front of me is a freind of mine so all pics are of him. He took pics of me, I'll post those later when I get them.

Yeah, it doesn't show much of anything. Its hard to go over the more difficult stuff and take pictures while doing it.

awesome man,where about is that trail? i plan on towing my jeep up there for a couple weeks one year soon, and hit up a bunch of lakes/creeks that you have to wheel to get to. Ive already done upper laurel lakes and it was a blast.

I'm not sure where Laurel Lake is but the Shaver Lake area has a plethora of challenging trails.
The Dusy/Ershom Trail and Coyote Lake are a couple of the most difficult that come to mind. Either one of the two require lockers front and rear. You don't want to do either by yourself. The Dusy trail is similar to the Rubicon but much more dificult.

Oh, the Jose Basin trail is west of the Shaver area at a much lower elevation. Its down near the San Juaqin River.

Yes, another 30ft and hook to the right. The LSD didn't even slip. I was surprised also as I didn't think that there would be enough bite due to the rain.

Wow, usually pictures dont do the steepness of obstacles any justice but that looks crazy! Nice climb.

The camera is tilted. Pictures don't do justice but if you tilt the camera to a point that you feel is reasonable, it works well. The only thing you need to watch out for are plants and trees that show the tilting. Notice the plants in the picture, their tilted. But it's OK, I believe that is the real steepness

I'm going to attempt to settle the controversy. I tilted the photo to what I figure the actual angle to be. I rotated it 11 degrees to get what you see below.
