Psi-Man Hey man, good to hear from you...MIA this year, no doubt. The group usually shoots for the first weekend of April, although this time it was the second week due to Easter I guess. This coincided with that inferno race so it was pretty busy up there. I've signed up for a couple of races with my nephew to stay in shape this off season, so I may just do another trip up here in May for shits and giggles. I'll throw up another invite next season to see if we can get a group together.

Jay was a great time as usual and my plan is to be there again next season.

--bigtime-- Shit! I'm so pissed I missed out on this. Met a few really chill dudes from Canada out in Jackson Hole last Feb and they were talking about hitting Tucks in April as well. I guess I should pay more attention to the forums. How was the Jay meet this year btw? I missed that too.

As you can sense from the picture, it's pretty friggin steep.

Dude that's an epic pic. I wanted to try it this year and I'm glad I didn't. Need another year or 2 of steeper terrain and some more Hiking/climbing experience under my belt.

NICE!!! Some people make it look easy - sounds like you did great!!! (I bought it in Right Gully last year and still haven't got the nerve back)

andrewdod A buddy of mine asked me if I wanted to do it sometime within the next few weeks. I told him no because my schedule is starting to get super busy. But I think imma try for next year.

Psi-Man Couldn't have asked for better weather/conditions than that on Saturday. Hope everyone in the NY group made it down safe. Wildcat ending up getting a couple inches on Sunday, which was good because it would have been pretty sketchy otherwise.
