    Failure and Success Green Belt Austin

    well... I been riding green belt about a hand full of times.. not much..but this was my first attempt at the "hill of life". Next time i will get it! The top was right there!!
    excuse the audio .. my brother was giving me a little encouragement ohh.. and whats with all the mulch??

    and this part im not sure how to describe it.. going down is not bad at all.. but at first i was a little intimidated... Coming up was more of the challenge.. im sure you can recognize it.. a little past the 360 entrance, towards the hill( excuse my excitement hehe.. i was happy )

    The first video is the Mulch Hill which is across from the real Hill of Life (you probably passed it on the way to the Mulch Hill). However, awesome job for climbing it... the video doesn't quite capture how difficult it really is.

    The second video is what some call Elephant's Butt but congrats on cleaning it. I finally cleared it for the first time Saturday.

    The Hill of Life if you're heading towards the Mulch Hill would be on your right. It looks like a really wide trail full of loose rocks and ledges, its before you cross the creek. While both are difficult, the HOL is MUCH harder than the Mulch Hill. Some folks can clean it all day with no dabs, my record is just 3 dabs on the way up.
