    Is there an El Paso equivalent to Austin's Emma Long?

    What is the El Paso equivalent to Austin's Emma Long? If you've never been to Emma Long, it's a bunch of up and down terrain, 1-4 ft ledges/drops, and very technical, and about 5-7 miles I think. I can't even remember how many times I unclipped or hesitated on a ledge drop.

    The friend who took me to Emma Long is coming to El Paso for a visit, and wants to see some difficult trails in terms of terrain, not so much elevation difficulty. I think Muleshoe Loop in the northeast is somewhat along the lines of what he's looking for, the only problem is that it's really short. So anyone know which trail or area in El Paso is considered highly technical or difficult?

    I have heard lots about it, but I've never been out there. I take it it's not just freeride stuff?

    To my understanding, not entirely, though MountainGoat111 would be the subject matter expert.Click his name to access his profile to PM him or check out the listing on the site for his # and email.Plus I don't believe it's accessible just any ol' time, so you would have to get with him, anyhow.
