The drop on my right side is only about 15-20 feet, but the drop on my left side was almost twice as big.

Wasn't sure what was going to happen, the snow had a layer of ice crust on top of it & it came to a point on top of the log.

Kinda thought I was going to slide off the side, but it was surprisingly easier than I thought it was going to be

What I wasn't expecting, was the shattered splinter spikes coming right for my belly.
There were about 5 of them, roughly 3 feet in length.
Had to grab on to them with both hands cause I didn't have any room to stop/turn.
My left mitt now has quarter size whole through it.

Luckily I spotted them or i might have been left hanging there like a shish kabob, with my intestines spilling out everywhere

You can see one huge one sticking straight up from the tree.
Sharp, pointy & extremely long


Hopefully, I'll be going back 2morra & I can take some more pics/vids

Well, I haven't made it back there but the chicky who filmed it sent me a couple pics.

Big props to this chicky too, I couldn't get any guys to come in there.
They would say they would, but when we got to the big red sign hanging between two trees on a thick ass chain proclaiming "Danger Permanently closed". They all changed their mind, 6 in total.


The first pic is very deceiving.
From the high side, you can't even tell there is another downed tree & drop off, right underneath it.

As soon as we went past it & looked back, both of us @ the same time said "We should have filmed it from this side"

That's why she took the extra pic.
