screw mountain bikes, how about some guys on trials bikes - now that would be sweet!Sissy!
I thought it looked pretty cool!
I have no idea the next time I would be in that area, but it would be something to see.
Actually, I would be more in fear of the food and water than that climb!
I will bet you could find some guys who would be wanting to ride there mountain bikes up it!
It must take days to get to that place.
Just about as far away from Michigan as you can get and still be on this planet.
I think I've seen that picture on http://www.hotchickswithdouchebags.com/ :loser::twofingerSure have! can't wait to do it again. My dream is to climb the cliff side.
The cables are semi permanent, they take them down every winter and put them back come summer time. There are boards every couple of yards giving a better place to step on. The biggest challange is really the 5 mile hike to get there, and the land of a thouthand stairs prior to the cables.
Without the cables and boards, you could still walk up it, assuming you had good sticky shoes, but it would be scary.
This gives a better idea of what the cables are like
The hike is pretty intense. Me and a friend went to yosemite (sp?) to do some climbing, and figured we'd hike on our off day. Now we are both in reasonably good shape, and we set off on this hike at about 9am, with a couple of gallons of water and a few powerbars. We didnt come down till after it was dark, it was an all day thing. If it wasnt for the kindness of strangers feeding us (at the saddle, where the cables start this hottie took pitty on me and gave me a salami and peanut butter burrito. I didnt care what it tasted like) we wouldnt have made it.
