Yeah, there was a pretty good reason the trailhead wasn't packed. A little much snow and way too wet. Got past the 3 points area where Carnage meets up and one Jeep to the tight spot obstacle and the rest either got stuck or we turned them around...All of us turned around in the end. Way to slick...constantly digging.

Had 4 WJ's, 2 ZJ's, and 4 TJ's up there.

While backing down one of our guys in a WJ in an offcamber section had his front tire slide off...spent 2 hours recovering it.

A series of blocks and a winch did the trick:

Another WJ with some bad tires...enough gas helps that:shrug: (http://www.gu3.net/jeep/Trip-Pics/LHC-3-19-06/MVI_3049.avi)

I had the same thing happen the weekend before. It was REALLY slick and backing down the front went away.

That looks like the spot where we had some issues on saturday....it got ALOT nastier past that point and had to do some winching/tugging to get the guys without lockers through. That offcamber/snowy combination on the side of a hill can get a little hairy! :D

jeff, thats a different spot. right before the shooting range is a left turn and that is the lefthand trail that goes around and meets up at 5 points where we had lunch. our off camber fun was at upper carnage/firemans
