    Looks like a good time!

    FWIW, the photo you labelled "part of Widow maker" is not, it is Barney Rubble (long chunky/rubbly section). Widow maker is not on the main trail anymore, the ranger re-established the original line which goes just above it. Since this is now the more obvious line most people miss Widow maker. I didn't see it in your vid

    Here is a pic of Widow Maker. The pic makes it look a lot tamer than it is.

    Haven't ridden there in a while but that right side next to the tree is a "cheat" line that we used to try and block. The original line is all the rock with black on it to the left.
