April 17th, 2000 - Pritchett Canyon, Moab, Utah, USA
Trip report - page 3:
We had to wait a while for a group of Jeeps and
Samurais to complete this climb first, a tough shelf called Rocker Knocker. It
requires an approach that can cause a lot of side angle. Kai starts his climb of it.
and here, Kai starts the turn that makes the climb possible. The
MooMog made quick work of it. As you can see, it is a bit tippy.
Bill C. on the lower part of the climb, as he eased
up it in crawler.
Once the front wheels get up over the shelf, the climb levels out.
Kai provides the spotting.
Bill finished the climb, and then he set up to help
winch other trucks up that needed help.
John climbs the shelf.
Rob's Turbo made it up on it's own.
The crawlers on this truck help, too.
Dr. Dan powers through the steps.
Bill G. made several attempts, but couldn't quite make it, so Bill C.
Chuck's Suzuki slipped into a precarious spot, and several
of us climbed on to counter-weight it to keep it from rolling over. Bill C. provided
the help once again.
I thought my VLF might not like the main route, so I found a new sneak
around the back side. It still had a big shelf to climb over, but it was a straight
approach, so I wouldn't tip to the side. After several attempts, I still couldn't
quite get the rear wheels up that last step, so Bill C. gave me a tug.
There are several fascinating rock formations in the canyon.
