OrangeXJ, Guammy, and ourselves tried making it to the top of Iron Chest this weekend. We made it to the second shelf road which is about a half mile from the top. We snow bashed through the first shelf road successfully, but the second was snowed completely over and we decided that it was not safe to continue. There is no snow on the lower section if you would like to wheel through the boulder field.

Thanks for posting! We're planning to head up there on Friday, and we were wondering how far up we would be able to go.

I doubt it will melt much in a cooler upcoming week.
The trail was fun up intil this point.

Lots of rock to play on

The exhaust shop tucked the exhaust up high so not to catch on anything when wheeling. He cut the tip at an angle and now it causes it to blow hot at exhaust at the bump causing discoloration in the paint. I am going to bring it back to him so he can fix that and install a heat shield.

We tried Mt Antero and ran into the same snow conditions at timberline, and stopped.
There is sure a mess of snow this year in the high country, last year at this time we were wheeling these trails... and "they" are saying we are in a drought?...
