Hole in the Rock

Post by Andrew on Sat Feb 16, 2013 11:16 am

The next trip Steve has planned is Hole in the Rock March 6-10th. Anyone planning on going? I am trying to get my brother-in-law and his friend to come up from Vegas to join us. If they can come, I'm definitely going. If not, I'm still up in the air.

I'm scheduled that weekend. I'm trying to get cut loose but it isn't looking good.

This is a link to the trail damage page on the Hole in the rock trail.

Google it, it looks like a fun, mellow, LONG, trail.

Steve has an extensive trip report and video posted on RME, I'll have to see if I can find it. From what I've seen (I haven't been on it), a skilled driver could probably take a stock rig through, but sliders and a locker sure couldn't hurt.

It's a long trail - you'll drive in a day, make a base camp, spend the next day driving to the end and coming back to base camp, then exiting the third day. You could probably do it faster, but large groups are slower and I can guarantee Steve will want to dedicate some time for exploring canyons and waterholes along the way.

So I talked to my wife about this and she is actually down with it, the only problem is that I couldn't get down there until the night of the 8th. We have family down in Monticello so we could crash at their place on the 8th and meet up with you guys on the 9th. (I assume its on that side of the hole-in-the-rock you are going to, outside of Blanding) I googled it and I got one site that's telling me its over by Escalante and by Peek a boo and spooky gulch, which i would love to take my kids to. Anyway, Hole-in-the-rock trail looks awesome. I would be worried about some of the spots I have seen online though, I don't think I would be able do some of them in my stock runner without good tires and sliders. I think Kevin said something about a skilled driver in a stock runner, I don't consider myself a skilled driver.

I haven't been on it, Chris, so I'm just guessing. I paged Steve, he can tell you if bringing your truck is a good idea or not.

Thanks for the page Kevin. We didn't take any stock rigs on it last year. Does your rig have a lift? I don't think sliders are necessary, but a rear hitch or bumper would be highly recommended. You'll drag tail a few times. There are some spots that might be kinda hairy for someone new to wheeling. We had a couple noobs with us last time. One guy rolled on his side because he is a dufus.

I guess it comes down to how much you're willing.to get a scratch on your rig. Are you planning on wheeling your rig a lot in the future? Are you OK with scratches and rock rash, or do you want to keep it ad clean as.possible?

Its not a difficult trail for an experienced Wheeler. I'd guess its About the same.difficulty as hells revenge.

Fwiw, this is a family friendly event. We don't mind a few beers at the campfire but we don't want people getting wasted at camp or drinking and driving or blaring music at camp.

My trips this year arent open to everyone, but I'm OK with you guys coming on hitr since it was posted here. I hope some of you can make it.

Knowing someone rolled on their side last year kind of deters me a bits. Maybe I should consider breaking my wheeling-teeth on something less challenging. I don't have a lift and I have crummy tires, but I do have a rusty rear hitch, Woot!!
Steve, if you have your video from HITR (Kevin mentioned you had one), would you mind posting it here so I could see it?

I suck at finding it on my.phone.

Search "hole in the rock trail" on YouTube. It.should be the.first.or second video
My YouTube name is iamsixstringsteve. We think the guy that flopped was drinking and.driving. he is the.only one I've ever heard.of rolling on that trail.

Unfortunately We will be headed back on the 9th. We might even be off the trail by that evening. Plus that would require you to run the trail solo. That would be a bad idea. If you could.come 2 days sooner it would be the only way to guarantee you're not running it alone.

We have room for a couple more people if any of you want to join. I know it's mid-week and requires time off work. It'll be a fun trip.

I'm already mad about missing last year, you don't have to rub it in. Mad

I kid. I'm still harassing my boss, but it doesn't look good, one of my coworkers just left on benefits. So you all are going to have to make sure it's an excellent trip report. Very Happy

I seriously considered the Tundra but chickened out. Next plan was to take the 4Runner - I'll probably stick with that.
