    Nice man, it's not as hard as it used to be since they bull bozed the spot but how far back did you make it? Did you go from Oracle or the front way? Still want to check that out soon.....we should plan something for next month?

    I went with some guys from my work and it was a last minute thing. They invited me on Friday at the end of the day.

    Here's the GPS coordinates I got off the AZFJ forum.

    Catalina Side
    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=...521378,-110.883529&spn=0.008775,0.019312&z=16

    Oracle Side
    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=...0.77491&spn=0.008767,0.019312&z=16&iwloc=addr

    We started from Catalina. It's not that hard especially for a 4WD. But we only made it that sign that says 4WD required, which is basically where all the boulder crawling starts, which is a big problem for 2WD. Plus we had a stock Jeep Cherokee on street tires with us as well, double handicap.

    Yeah, I was looking at a lot of the local forums and they all had posted pictures of the bulldozing work but those pictures are old and the trail is still pretty rough.
