    Cheese Grater Sanatized (or ST tooting his own horn)?

    Okay, so I'd say for the second time ever, I was able to ride most of the Cheese Grater last night (with the exception of the really rocky section, which I am going to attempt again tonight). I know they sanatized the initial climb, but it seems some of the steps were easier than I remember (cheater rocks, etc.). Was it just me?

    I know the general location, but I don't think I've ridden it.

    There is some cool stuff out on that side of the Preserves.

    From Conversation Point (the small peak at the end of the climb on T100 from DD park east), head east on Trail 1A. Just after the bench, after you drop into the little wash and then back out, there is a trail that heads up and south (have no idea what the trail number is). Just stay on that.

    It's been "graded" ... most of it is rideable now except for 10 feet of it where the steps are.. for me at least.

    I love that climb now though, what is it 450 ft of gain in a quarter mile?! Sweet.

    It was the bike.
    I rode it a couple of weeks ago and it's not as rough as it once was. Seems to be more just from heavy use and lack of a good monsoon to scour things out. Unless it got VoAZ'd in the last two weeks.
    I rode Sassy's Ridge on Sunday and that one still has some sections that'll make you pee your chamois.
    This is just need to know information: Am i supposed to enjoy the irony or pity the sincerity?

    That would be the cheesegrater (or liver lacerator in Rex's case)

    Actually, the section I was referring to is the downhill on the south side of the saddle.

    Just look for the rock with blood splotches, and patches of dried skin.

    I was wondering the same thing.
    Hiked up 8B, then scoped out the West Side.
    It all looks doable, except for that nasty chute a little ways down.
    Not sure if that's rideable or not.

    8B is pretty nasty looking too.

    Yeah, it's doable, but high potential for disaster. I rode it one day solo on my little bike with no armor and an xc lid, felt a little undergunned so I walked a few sections. That chute was one of them, but it seems doable if you don't hesitate. There is one spot with a solid 5' drop to pretty flat and not much room for error, but there is a ride around up to the left. Was wishing I had the big bike, some gear and a riding buddy. It is the closet thing to the upper part of bootleg I have seen around here... rock chutes, steep, off-camber, drops and exposure. High pucker factor.

    8B on the east did look nasty too, but I just hiked up it. Steep, jagged rocky, and lots of loose talas.

    Exactly what went through my mind while I was debating whether I should give it a go.
    That chute is pure commitment, but I didn't venture much farther down than that. Going to have to check that out soon.

    8B is pretty nasty, but I did find a "doable" line down it. Definitely armor + big bike for that. I think speed would be your friend, since all the chutes/drops are filled with shale. Start locking the brakes and you're done.

    ...it's possible if could have been sanitized...

    ... but it didn't look any different from the last 5 times I attempted it... but the outcome this time WAS different!
