Yes, that trail looks scary!

You shouldn't have any problems. I have tow and a half inch lift with 31 AT's and I took the worst options on the trail. No worries

Justin04Lj I've been down china wall a few times in my stock suspension Lj it does help to have aggressive tread.

Oldguy Well, I'm sure there will be a few going to CW on Sunday. That is quite doable for stock, although I wouldn't call it "easy". See if you can work that, I'm sure everyone would be happy to meet you.
01-24-2012 08:59 PM
K.Wyman Aww... I'm "supposed" to work Saturday. I was going to try to go out Sunday. I'll look it up though. Maybe go out again Sunday with me??? Haha

Anyone else in the HWY 72 / Golden / Nederland area?

Check Colo-TJ's Seven Mile thread, you're near Boulder so it would be an easy shot for you. He wants to go this Saturday unless I can entice him into checking out the Gulches

Haha, yeah...definitely that bad...

Its in the top 3 most difficult trails in colorado (followed by patriot and independance trail)

When slaughterhouse thaws out thats a great trail...china wall (as mentioned above) is a nice trail...and some other really easy ones would be 7 mile and bald mountain then green ridge and kelly flats are a bit more moderate as well as a few others in that area...

BV Jeep OOOH the Carnage Question????? Well there is a sign ate the beginning that says you need a mimimum of 35" tires, Lockers on all 4, Replacement parts, in case you break an axle or something, Winch, Tools and an oil recovery system of some sort. Most of even the BIG rigs have to winch out of the exit. Not all of them but some of them. Look it up on YOUTUBE and check out some of the vids. That will help to make up your mind.

There's another exit out of China Wall, other than going back the way we came in. FS204 comes out further north than the main entrance. It's very rocky and has a really tight squeeze at one point. Full size rigs usually can't make that turn. TrailDamage.com has a pretty good description of FS204:
