Hole-in-the-Wall & Snake Bite I+II

April 7th 2012

Description

Snake Bite I and II end into a wall called JB's Revenge are rated 4/4+.  I have not run Hole-In-The-Wall yet personally, but I understand it is rated 5.  Snake Bite is not too bad, but expect to winch JB's Revenge due to the last obstacle, which is an 85 degree wall.  Short wheel base rigs will most definetly winch.  MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A WORKING WINCH!  I will lead both runs on Saturday.  Bring a lunch as we will eat on the trail.  Required gear: winch, front and rear lockers, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, 35" tires, 2" lift (minimum), strong axles.  Body damage possible on Hole-in-the-Wall.
