funny, i get more excited about cleaning uphill sections than i do down. every time i ride salamander/sticks'n stones and bottletop over to hyannis i get excited about cleaning a rock/root uphill section, or a steep uphill. my focus has changed, or maybe it's because of the people i ride with. but it's good.
Is anyone cleaning the climb around that giant ass rock on sticks and stones when riding it backwards (East to West) ? I come around the bottom of that thing, and just see impossible rock climb.
