    Next time we do the White Mtn I'll show you the hill I was told about, it looks really sketchy and steeper, and bigger drop offs on both sides.

    It's not as apparent as the other one being right off the main trail, which is why I think that one gets confused with it. But who really knows lol

    Yeah haha... That was fun. Had the supercharger screaming while trying to mob up it in the snow with little traction

    Hmm... you guys are concerning me and getting me excited all the the same time. Well I’ll be up there in late August so I’ll post up some videos of me going up, tumbling down, or smoking the engine to it’s death :rofl:

    If all else fails, crawl control will be activated :anonymous: haha.

    The headwall is probably steepers than 55, but it "flattens" up a bit after the first 5 foot drop or so.

    Here's a pic of it more level

    I have a pic of me standing on the slope, down a bit, let me see if I can find it...

    Edit, here it is

    Oh its steep as fuck. Fun though :D

    But to the point, I don't think anyone would be able to drive up a slope thats 55°...
