Pisgah - Buckwheat Knob - Video

(updated: Aug 17, 2008)

Here's an intense trail in Pisgah. This is the reward for some seriously painful climbing you have to do to get to it. This trail ends where Bennett Gap starts, so we rode this just before Bennett. I'll have to get going on adding GPS tracks. This was the first time I rode this trail, and I did on my RIP 9.

That is something I can't seem to figure out how to fix. The camera is always aligned parallel to the terrain, so it tends to flatten everything out. If you can figure out how to make it look as steep as it really is, you'd rule.

And one thing i can promise you is that it was quite steep, though Bennett Gap was an entirely different world...and i am not RIF RAF! You were only living in a condo for the camping trip :o)

One of the greatest bands of all time.
