    Hey Roy-

    I was up north last weekend, 3 days on the shore- it was awesome! I'm DL'ing video now. Anyways, I'll keep in touch- if the weather cooperates I'm down to come up and meet you. EBX hits the new wall-ride on salvation:

    Roy,

    Our buddy, Juice, will also be up there next week for the event and he's speaking on one of the panels as well. Although he's not a homer, he's someone you should hook up with as he knows the area really well and is a super fun guy to ride with.....

    Thanks FM for the pic. That wallride is COOL and not as hard as it would seem, but it was really slick last weekend so getting higher up on it was a challenge. Actually, the run-in is the hardest part as you've got to jump some roots directly in front of the entrance in order to carry enough speed to not slide down it. Our buddy, Drew, came in way too hot over the jump, got wonky in the air and literally piledrove himself into the side of the wall. It was not pretty at all. I think FM decided to pass on it after that. Not a bad call as that crash had everyone a bit tentative at that point.

    So, we had 15 guys riding for a buddy's bachelor party (goatboy001).....talk about a rippin' weekend. A few pics of FM last weekend. I wish I had gotten him hitting a nice gap on Ned's Atomic Dustbin (smooth like buttah), but I was out of batteries by that point.
    1. Climbing up on Fromme....still looking spry before the debauchery.
    2. Entrance to Upper Oilcan in the patented North Shore fog
    3. The last log ride on 7th secret.

    Cheers,
    EBX

    Yeah, look me up, we'll hit some runs or drink some drinks. I was actually only up to Whis once last year (hard to drive past Fromme), but I know the lower mountain pretty well. I'll be leading a couple sessions ("Grantwriting" and then "Building trails in urban ecosystems"). Or find me in line at the lifts between the IMBA sessions. Tallish skinny guy on a red VP-Free w/888 and a white helmet that is beat to hell. Oh yeah, in the real world they call me Justin. Next week is going to be off the hook!

    Very cool feature! I actually like that it's a bit hard to get onto, adds more pucker factor. I slid down it and crashed my first try and just kind of hung on for the second one and pulled it off (but not pretty). It'll take a lot of runs to get as smooth as ebx on that thing. Solid riding last weekend boys. Gaps, wallrides, skinnies, steeps, chundery fast runs, it had it all!
