This will be an Over Mount Lemmon, down the backside and up Rice Peak run.

WHAT: Run up RICE peak with Bonus Down the back of Mt. Lemmon to see how bad the BURRO fire hurt us, if you wish. When we get to Oracle, we can head RIGHT to Redington pass to make the grand Loop. Or you can split off and head home!

WHERE: Meet up is the McDonalds at Catalina Highway / Tanque Verde Rd. 9075 E Tanque Verde Rd
MAP 32 253321,-110 824481
WHEN: 10:00 - Sunday October 8th to be Phoenix friendly.

LIMIT: we can only fit about 10 rigs up there at a time, but I'm not going to limit this. We can take turns.
HOW: CB 16, 146.46 Simplex (Talkin channel is the EAARS system 147.160 ML with PL 141.3.
STOCK OK

FOOD: Bring some, we can eat on the summit, or be hungry till we get to the top and then you can buy some fudge at the general store. You can always turn around and get Cheetos & Redbull at Circle K in Oracle.

Three other commitments throughout that day or I'd go. Anybody doing anything the next Sunday?

PS - Going out to Reddington Pass some day next week to get off pavement. Any intel on the area about which we should be forewarned?

Not that I've heard. The FS said that damage (sterilization) was less than 1% which hopefully means the drainages didn't get clogged.

I did this trail recently and I wouldn’t mind doing it again, but the in-laws are in town while the kid is out for fall break. Sorry, I wish I could.

You're the first to sign up. So likely a thing. Hope to get more interest.

Well, it's not a 1.0, but it's pretty tame all the way to the loose rock near the top. As previously revealed, the dead man's drop obstacle is no more. Literally obliterated and piled high on the side of the road where it used to be. There are some very small remnants but you wouldn't even know there was an obstacle there if not for the little tree that was your target on your Passenger side line.

There was another rocky obstacle right at the exit to the river bottom, but that's gone too. Sad.

I still needed to use my locker to get up the loose stuff because I wasn't aired down. (Simulating stock as much as I could). Still made it though.

So did Kiddman57, my partner in crime.

All in all it took 2 hours to do the whole trail (Round trip).

I put up some pictures on my Trail write up. Modified it from a moderate to Easy trail. (Except the last little bit, that's still a locker hoot).





And where the obstacle lives now. Sad



In it's glory days
