    Most of these shots were very inspiring and to me not stupid at all. Some like these last 2 I dont know how you could stay on your bike. It looks fun and yes Insane too.
    Great post yall.

    This is a really cool thread. Looking through these gives me two feelings:

    1) "Steep" is a qualitative term. How each of us interperates "steep" varies significantly.

    2) Rolling steeps seems to be a trend of the past. There are a lot of older looking pictures relative to the total.

    Here are a few of my favorites:

    Where is that part btw? Is it on the back by the chalk marked half pipe thing or on the front side where you go up? Just curious, I have only been there twice, but I dont remember seeing it (though I saw some things that could be it)

    edit:
    On further looking it appears it is on the back side near the left of the mesa block. If it is there, it appeared people were riding down the side of it as well as the groove and that looked even more insane. Either way I had no part of it. I rode the half pipe feature uphill so to speak, so start way off to the side ride a bit downhill at high speed and roll up. I had been in a quarter pipe before in a skateboard and tried to emulate the feel by riding up fast then trying to turn as I slowed. Needless to say I crashed and made a mess of things (mostly my shorts, hips, tore my shoe open sliding dh etc...)

    notice the tiny dude in the background where this portion ends.

    in theory its doable if the grass wasnt so high that you couldnt see the terrain. :eekster:

    its a shame this trail was leveled a bit and turned into a road down the mountain. :mad:

    There's this one:


    And this one:


    That's not me in the second one, but I have ridden it. Right in front of my buddy's front wheel is a nice ledge that plays a big mind game. The roll in is a pretty harsh angle too. The first pic is two rollers in a row with a short horizontal spot in the middle. Never seen anyone do that one.

    That's pretty steeep IMHO, but it has the one thing that makes something steep rideable and that's a nice, rolling tranny so you don't have to be worrying about it too much - I'd hit that, think it would be fun. Don't have anything that long & steep here, but we've got that steep, just too short.

    This is such a friking awesome thread and the stuff some people will attemp is mind blowing. When this thread came out 2 years ago I never in my wildest dreams would have thought I would give anything like this a try, guess I've come a ways ;)

    Tilt your head where you're looking at the picture as if it was vertical. Notice how the GGB is crooked? I believe he tilted the picture due to the camera being tilted.

    I'm going to post about the Old Mammoth Kamikaze run that was first held in the White Mountains in California, just south of Mammoth.

    It's a fireroad in terrible shape and very steep. White knuckle, a$$ puckering, disk brake burning goodness.

    Silver Canyon Road plunges through a lengthy series of switchbacks and sharp curves from an elevation of 10,490 feet to about 7,200 feet in 3.8 miles. At that point, the canyon bottom and Silver Creek is reached and the road widens and is nowhere as steep as what you have just biked over.

    This picture is from a 4X site, the real drop happens right where the road bends in the picture.



    We entered way too fast and all of a sudden we were close to being out of control. I was never so grateful for having both body armor and a full face helmet.

    Heck some people actually climb this beast.....idiots we are.

    Near the bottom:

    Not far from here just north is another super steep run....Sand Canyon...but that's a different story.

    At Seldom Seen on the Great Dividing Range.




    At Mount Stromlo, there is a straight track called Terminal Velocity. On my second visit to Terminal Velocity, I was going for a PB on dirt. I checked the tyres at the bottom, the webbing was coming through the side walls of the Kenda Small Block 8s and the stress had turned the rubber white. The tyres were only about a week old, and they were herniating, they wouldn't have lasted for a second run. It was a very expensive kilometre ... and I forgot to turn the GPS on.

    A few years ago now, one of my Mates, went down the Clyde Mountain on his BMX, the Clyde is somewhat steepish and long. Dave told me, he hit the brakes hard on one of the tight turns and the brake rubbers were spat out of the housings. Dave said that the brake rubbers were already melting before their catastrophic failure and there was nothing that he could do to slow down. When he crashed he was badly burnt and lost much skin and he ended up with not one stitch of clothing left on him. Only his full-face helmet stayed on. Braidwood was the closest hospital, his brothers were following him in a car. Dave was burnt not just from gravel rash, the fabric he was wearing melted and stuck to his skin. He was wearing one of those old nylon BMX suits. There are quite a few escape ramps on the Clyde for vehicles in extreme difficulty, unfortunately Dave wasn't passing one at the time. When I drive down to the coast nowadays, I always smile when I pass Dave Coltman's corner ... and know that it isn't iron in the earth that has stained those rocks red.

    Warren.

    PS, I thought that I just heard violins playing.

    Ahh the Clyde. Many memories as a kid of family jaunts down to Broulee all Summer (and some of Winter) long. The Clyde was much sketchier and more narrow and at times gravel back in the 80's, and it was a forgone conclusion that we'd be gettin' high on the smell of brake pads & brake shoes burning from ours and the cars in front, for most of the 45 minutes spent descending it in our old Fiat-then-Mazda-then-Datsun. I always wanted to go up the emergency brake ramps, but Dad would never do it.

    As for cycling down steep bitumen roads - did you ever give Constitution Hill a go near Bundanoon? We did it on one of the 3 speed hire bikes from Ye Old Bike Shoppe before helmets were the norm. Good times.

    nuclear_powered, I once rode up Constitution Hill on my Ishiwata road bike and then I rode down it. I tried to make it up Fitz's Hill on the southern ACT Border a few years back, but I stalled about 80 metres from the summit during a Fitz's Hill hill climb, which I think is still held. When I came down Fitz's Hill on the Ishiwata it was the scariest thing that I have ever done. It would be good to do the Fitz's Hill hill climb on the Anthem.

    Coming down Fitz's Hill on my Anthem, would be a hoot. The old Campagnolo brakes on the Ishiwata were state of the art at the time (they were the Campag 80th Anniversary set), but they were not a patch on the basic Shimano disc brakes that are on the Anthem X3. The gear is so good nowadays it is outrageous. The Shimano disk brakes that I have on the Anthem I guess aren't far off entry level but they are very good.

    n-p, on a sad note, about the Clyde Mountain, do you remember Pooh Corner, and the iconic feature on the mountain that delighted every kid who travelled up and down the Clyde, enjoyed by kids over several decades? I was told last week that vandals destroyed the feature. They didn't just wreck the shrine in the grotto, they plundered the ornaments, decorations and memorabilia. The vandals totally laid waste the natural feature using something like crow bars. I'm always amazed at how much trouble vandals will go to to destroy something that is special to others.

    so glad its been bumped so many times.. i love these types of threads.. wish there was a sticky or subforum for all them.. some seriously crazy stuff in here that i would die attempting... maybe once i lose some weight and im not so top heavy i can try some mediocre slopes... just started riding a few weeks ago and started practicing some drops today off the back porch ranging from 1ft to 2ft.... pansy stuff

    It really isn't that impressive to see, the person is moving at ~3mph. There is a certain amount of balance associated with it as too little weight on the front wheel means you flip over but too much means you lose traction.

    That's what makes it impressive. And any pointers I can get from watching others riding steep stuff is a bonus.:)

    Just found this old thread of an even older ride with picture after picture of some serious BC steeps.....rolled on some old-school, short-travel, steep HA classic iron. You'll see Knolly founder Noel Buckley and some other old time mtbr regulars in there.

    Amazing stuff. Respect.

    Wow!
    Beautiful photo's everyone! Excellent thread!
    Here's a couple from my collection.
    The first is a roller on Amasa Back. The nice thing about this is a guy pal told me it wasn't do-able. I won't say anymore in case he sees this someday. ;)
    The second is beautiful SoCal decomposed granite. AKA sketchy! Front brakes rule on this
    Third shot, sorry it's tad out of focus but yeah, it's loamy,rocky wall. I could barely crawl down it!
    Fourth shot is more steep slidey decomposed granite!
    Thanks for the great thread!

    So, what is the technique for riding down these steep boulder/rockfaces? Lean back, brake into it then just let it roll or feathering brakes down? LIke the ToiletBowl in Utah, I watched a vid of one rider just ripping it down really fast but another vid, the rider was slower.

    Either way works fine. That's the cool thing about slick rock, there's so much traction you can inch down a very steep face in total control (or even stop dead in the middle and track stand if you want) or if the run out is available just bomb it like a big half pipe. Very entertaining.

    Is Whistler steep like this? If so, no need for me to even make the trip! I've got enough damage from years as a strong safety in college. Some of these pics look like suicide attempts, literally.

    This section of trail in Meran Italy was reasonably steep - but by far the steepest track I have seen is the Champery track in Switzerland - parts of that trail are pucker factor 9 and I have the deepest respect for anyone that can ride it top to bottom - and as for doing it in the rain - well, hats off to Hart for that immense effort :thumbsup:!

    Short, unedited(sorry, I just like the bike sounds:))video of a rock roll my buddy and I were playing on a couple weeks ago. Not super steep, with an iPhone app determined it ranged from 33 to 45 degrees. It's an undulating roller that is about 40 feet long with a good run out. You have to hike up onto the top. I always thought this would be such a rad start to a trail!

    Maybe we should start one. Although it is tougher to show the difficulty of steep climbing moves, I've seen a few that are impressive.

    Great shot jhazard. I really like your photography. Always such good images: sharp focus, good colors, and great perspective.

    evdog posted a few shots on the "Best Riding Images of 2012" thread that reminded me of this thread. Very steep. Maybe I'll repost them here if he doesn't mind.

    And some AZ for good measure


    This one is a bit of a mindf*ck. Look at the log and the ferns just above rider's head, and judge how far down they look relative to the horizontal distance to get to them. Shot is from directly above, and its a long way down!

    Actually no suspension makes it very much more confident as you don't have to guess what your suspension will do, or at least for me on anything like that, takes the guesswork out. Now on really rocky, sh1t rigid can beat you up and sus is nice, but so far, anything I can roll on the FS I can roll on the rigid. As to Cantis, no I see discs.

    I started with ridgid and rode some of the same I ride now but with a couple of wheel stands from coming down on rocks that would not get out of the way(like they lived there or something). The suspension seems to help me roll through. I stayed away from long steep because I knew the cantilevers would not help me much with control(I am 200lbs and the brakes were cheap). I would also come off a ride with numb forearms from the constant hammering. If I break my FS though, I'll ride the rigid in a heartbeat.

    This one is a bit of a mindf*ck. Look at the log and the ferns just above rider's head, and judge how far down they look relative to the horizontal distance to get to them. Shot is from directly above, and its a long way down!

    fun stuff there

    How accurate is the camera angle on this shot? Looks like it might be off maybe slightly, but looks majorly steep. What's the roll in like, blind or can you see where you need to go? How's the grip on that rock?

    The gradation in the sunset looks pretty level to me. And that bush/tree on the left is growing straight up.

    Steeeeeeeeeeep?
    I finally got around to riding the Love Canal / Dolly Parton at Bartlett last week. It's certainly steep, but not as scary steep as some of the photos on the first couple pages make it look. It would be interesting to compare measured slopes- is that steeper than the entry to Rockstacker, for example? Probably, but not by much. Of course, I don't have any interest in surveying them personally.

    what are you riding bike wise?

    Sweet stuff, we don't have anything like that down here, no solid granite, just lots of very sharp coral. Would be interesting to see some of that stuff and maybe give it a try - remember my first trip to CO and what an eye opening experience it was compared to the mainly XC stuff I was riding down here, when I got back I started searching out more technical stuff and giving a go at stuff I'd balked at before. Biggest thing to learn is once you commit, stick with it, don't try to bail part way in, that normally ends bad.

    I believe that publicizing fun technical riding increases the public demand for such trails and features.

    We Bandaleros are currently involved in the first authorized technical trail in our local forest system.

    Hit me up for a ride some time it'll be fun :)

    Did you build that feature, Woodson?

    Great thread! After looking through this I'm jealous of you guys and your rocky terrain. We have a fair bit of steep stuff here, but it's all clay and slippery tree roots. Should still take some pics I guess.

    Cool thread!

    Iíve had this pic saved for a long time because I love it so much.
    I donít know who it is, or when it was taken, so credit where credit is due- but Iím 95% sure itís Ďbackside dropí on Hangover trail in Sedona. Assuming it is, Iíve ridden this, and quite frankly it gave me the Ďadrenaline shakesí afterwards.

    I love that pic! I especially like how the dog looks so ... casual. :-)
