(Did you know that locally, the Pirates are reguarded as the assholes of the trail? They're the ones known to gladly strip your stuck vehicle and the ones drinking and shooting guns, leaving garbage and parts behind?)
We never did make it to Spyder or the Sluece. We made it about 2 miles from the Sluece. We ran out of spare parts, and didn't wanna be dicks and possibly block the trail for the hundred or so Yotas coming thru in groups of 20 about once an hour on Friday. The people we explained this to didn't say we were pussies for deciding this. They gave us respect for repecting them and the trail. They thought we were unlike most idiots who would insist on proving a point and continuing. We had already done the Gate Keeper, the Slab, and Walker's Hill. 2 of the 3 are listed among the "most difficult" on the map's legend. We were satisfied.
More and more stories soon. Pics also, I promise. The video will take a little while. You've waited 10 months, another won't be so bad.

And one more thing, the way you get to GateKeeper is thru Loon Lake. Just to Clarify, did you come in thru Loon Lake or in thru Wentworth Springs Rd? If you came in Wentworth Springs you did NOT go thru the GateKeeper, you went up Post Pile.
