    Too much to list, but enough to get me in trouble. Repeatedly.
    Huh. I never really looked at this.
    Yep. That is precisely spot-on where it happened. I can see the wide, sweeping right turn where I first had data service, the steep climb from that to the switchback, and even the near-impossible short spur to the left. And of course the hella tight switchback that got me (where the map point is).
    Yes, it's as hairy as the satellite imagery looks!

    Btw- the anchor rock for my self-extraction is the light brown speck surrounded by slightly-darker brownness directly above the "56" in the latitude coordinates of the first image.
