Saturday run June 15

Haven't been wheeling since the April fool's run, thinking spring creek maybe? Any takers?

Strong maybe. Need to finish the decking on my stairs which I am hoping to get done today or tomorrow. I think SC will be clear, when I went thru Georgetown on Wednesday there was very little snow.

I'm seriously considering this run. I have a buddy that might want to run with us if that's ok. Very capable rig and driver. He's run this trail before.
Do we know if the trail is open yet?

A group went up Saturday, made it to the top. But Argentine? Pass was slick and icy. Hoping by Saturday it will be passable at the top.

I'm still a definite going to try and make it maybe, but my buddy probably won't make it.
Has there been a meet up point and time set yet?

Theres a Home Depot on 6th/I70 if that works.


We have plans Saturday evening (6ish). If we meet at 9 again and hit the trail at 930 we could be done fairly early in the afternoon.

OK. I have been upgraded to a maybe..

I made it through Chinaman. Is this tougher? Easier? If I can swing it I might invite my Bro-in-law. He has 35's, winch, and open diffs. Are open diffs a no go?

I'd say comparable. Someone recommended last year:


"1 locker minimum, diff covers, skid plates and bring your own recovery gear, emergency parts and have a spare tire with you."


Id say the hardest obstacle is the wall, which if I remember right the best line was furthest to the left after the first three attempted the middle line. This particular spot is pretty off camber and poses a possible rollover hazard.

Bro-in-law is out.

I have truetrac's F&R which I thought performed pretty well at Chinaman and diff covers. No replacement parts or skids yet. I'm still really low in miles. I know anything can go at any time but nothing has seen much stress yet. Maybe I get some markings to indicate what skids I need. I'm comfortable giving it a go if you guys are comfortable with me tagging along. Won't know for sure until tomorrow anyway.

I think you should be ok. The rock garden will require some spotting. Glad to see @jjvw is going to make it!

Worst case we winch you up. Come along. I'll say that it's probably no harder than Chinamens, but has many more obstacles compared to chinamans

There is a bypass for the off camber entrance if a person doesn't want to do it...

I may be in, if I don’t go camping. I’ll be parking by the Georgetown lake and driving to the trailhead.

Meet up at the home depot at 6th and colfax, 830 am. Convoy up, should be at the trail head between 9-930 depending on traffic. Looks like we have 4 for sure and a couple of maybes?
