Ed showing me why I should not have switched out my 26x4" tires for 29x2.8". Lesson learned! This climb requires skill, luck, and most likely some walking! Keep in mind it is a long helicopter ride to the nearest hospital (if you can get cell service!).

View of the Sonoran Desert around the Sonoran View Spur, from the top of the climb. Fat tires help!
