"The batman rappell posted earlier. Those boltz were so bad. Spinners and rotters. 3/16" x 1.5"; never trusted them."

That was like 73, the rap station bolts were good then and I know I'm gonna die.

Have the spinners and rotters been upgraded?

Have fun all!!!

I was there in the early-mid '80s. Those boltz were crap. But I still clipped them.

I believe back in those days, The Trough was rated F4. What is the consensus rating these days?

That is tentativly the plan.
If everyone brings a little something, we could have a pretty nice picnic.

So Jeff, Sewellymon,

Big Rock is 1/2 mile hike in on a paved road. Park has restroom and picnic tables.....no water or food.

I imagine we can bring small bbq's. I'll bring 6 gallons of H20.

Wadda ya think as far as food? Bring whatever, have a general menu or just bring snacks and heavy appetizers. lynnie

PS. If folk want to come and don't want to bring food, yo, just show up, we'll have plenty. :D

I might try and make it. haven't been there in years, but that was my lead training ground.
as for the trough, let's just say that water and grease don't mix. . . . . .
