My husband wants to do it this weekend and is leaving up to me to make the call. We'd be taking out a Hecla due to the clearance issue with our cat at Stone Bridge, but I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what I'm in for compared to how I've seen it before. My husband just did it solo in the cat on Monday, said it was awesome, and is pumped to go back this weekend. What washes out, what becomes more of an issue? Just curious. Thanks in advance!
Canyon doors becomes a bit bigger. It can stall you... Pinball gets completely washed out.
Zoom gets a bug hit near the bottom where the rock (pyramid) is... You can run right or left.
Big drop can flip you... Easy skirt to the right.
Seven stairs becomes a fun pong wave train.
Widow is washed out. Raft ripper opens up.
The rest is read and run...
