Description

I am doing a day trip, you are welcome to camp if you like. 

This is a difficult and technical run.  Don't be upset should you sustain body damage.  Some go arounds are available but not for everything. Dry Camping. Talk to the trail boss before signing up to ensure you are properly equipped and prepared. This is not a beginners run.

Saturday: Depart at 09:00am from rendezvous and proceed up Doran Loop, eat lunch and head over to wall Street view point. We will then head down Doran loop.  

I ran this with 35s and took some minor body damage, it is a fun run. Good rock sliders are a must, I saw a guy make it without lockers if you want to try it. It is a boulder field with a fun "pucker pass" obstacle. I will not be doing the gate keeper cut across.  We can stop and watch or if anyone in the group wants to try it...
