    Castlewood. Anyone cleared "the beast"?

    If you start at the two benches next to the "no trespassing" crossing, follow the stinging nettle towards cedar bluff loop, there are two newish features built with logs on the side of the trail.

    Heading towards cedar bluff, I have affectionately named the first feature "the beast."

    I was wondering if anyone has cleared it. It took me about 30 tries to get the hang of it, and cant imagine trying it with clips. You just have to make sure you stay more towards the right side of it.

    Anyway, I wish someone would approach the park about building more official balance features such as this like at klondike. It would be alot of fun.

    For the moment, it's pretty solid. But if you're into skills stuff I recommend checking it out before it wears away.

    Unfortunately I did, but I cleared my phone just the other day.
    I'm going to try to head back out that way this weekend if at all possible.
    Ill see if I can't get a vid of me clearing it. It's wicked fun.

    Ill keep you posted.
