    This little 2/10th of a mile, 11+% grade climb. I've cleared it all attempts over the last few months and am 3 sec. from KOM. TONS of 4-10 inch loose rocks that seem to be in different place each time I try it! Didn't get pics of the last little killer after the trees, but it's loose and steep!

    Second day on my fs 29er, Albuquerque South Foothills... took me two tries to clear this one. There was another techy climb that I didn't photography because, well, I just couldn't do it

    Looks a lot more fun to come down than to go up. Awesome pictures!

    I have done this climb, is does qualify as tough one.

    I've only gone up that once, I made it a lot farther then I thought I would (how ever far that was I don't remember). I like to do that trail clockwise so I get this as the decent, and the smooth section as the uphill. It took me a while to clear it going down too, now I can do it without touching the brakes. One day that will come back to bite me though, I'm sure...

    We go up it and come back down the same way. I love a good techy climb.

    Just pay attention to the first min and change, videos take me forever so I put the good stuff first. The rest is a trail with a lot I CAN'T clear. (fixed or otherwise)

    So the logpile (at :20) was made from trees down from Sandy. I only tried to put a front tire on it the since first time I encountered it, but decided to give it a shot for real since I had a spotter (usually stuck riding solo). Cleared it the first time!

    Thanks!

    This is Belmont Plateau, in West Philadelphia. I still can't wrap my head around the fact that this kind of singletrack is IN the city (the Wissahickon trails are more popular but a 7 mi ride just to get to them for me).

    The log clears are on a trail called the "mouse" and the POV part is on the second half of that system (you can connect them or not). All the trails there are super tight and techy, but I feel like it's making me hone skills quick. (aka, they kick my butt).

    This is hardly a match for some of the previous posts but they are what we can clear. We were proud.

    Hey Ricardo,

    You should be proud as those are some fun features! The skills you'll develop on them will stand you in good stead wherever you ride.

    Good on Ya!

    It took me a moment to realize you were wearing more than socks on your feet.

    Ha ha! It's quite the look I know but I only have super vented mtb shoes and get frozen toes if I dont use shoe covers/over socks when it's cold.

    Where's that last section? Doesn't look familiar...

    I'll have to post a few of my successed. And there are only a few...

    Mike, it's a rarely travel trail. Basically the west side of Porcupine past the saddle are that you can go north to Fat Man's or south to T100. It's a tough climb, that takes a little skill, but mostly determination and willpower. I circled it on this map attached in PINK. YOU can....DOOO IIITTTTTT!

    Yes, as soon as you said it I knew exactly where it was. I like going E > W on Porcupine Ridge and hitting that section. I've tried to climb it twice. Once a year or more ago. Failed. The second was maybe 6 months or so ago. Cleaned it. Was surprised 'cause that loose stuff is a bear and then you finish off with that section of rocks and tight turns just when you are outta gas.
