    It's the 'squeeze' obstacle on the Helldorado trail in area BFE. This vid will give some perspective as to what we were trying to accomplish... The jeeps fit, I didn't..   Vid looks pretty tame until towards the end where Derek jumps down in the trail - then you can see what we were up against.

    I could have ground it out and crawled out...  but we opted to hook Marks winch to my exo-cage above the windshield and compress the suspension in the front...  allowing it to slip out with much less paint left on the rocks.  8-)

    Great videos.  I like the angles you work Josh (and will be using them in the future).
    Black Flag should be called Boulder Avalanche.

    I was going through some Moab photos and found one that I thought had accedently been erased, it was one of my fav's, the way everything lines up it actually gave a great perspective on the size of some of the rock ledges and obstacle's in Moab,  seems like that aspect gets lost pretty easy with most vid and photos.
