    Pot Peak Epic 07/03/05 (day 2)

    Day 2, Pot Peak Epic (yes). 10 miles/4500 ft to climb up the N. Fork 25 Mile Creek trail. Traverse the Devil's Backbone and the Perfect Impasse and get what could be the best buff, swoopy 10 miles of descent around.

    1. Brian climbing the N. Fk. 25 Mile Creek Trail
    2. Pot Peak is the summit in the middle, be there in a few hours
    3. Devil's Backbone
    4. Start the drop, Lake Chelan about 5000' below

    An awesome ride for sure. The climb out of the N. Fk. 25 Mile Creek was a grunt. About 4500' in 10 miles. The burned areas were brushy which was getting old after awhile. The brush stopped at 5000' and the trail got really nice.

    The descent is one of the best, Devil's Gulch / Mission Ridge on massive steroids. Only one 200' climb in the whole 4000' plus drop.

    Gearz remembered the numbers, 28 miles, 6800' climbing, close to 9 hours total time.
