Has anyone been down to ride Porcupine Rim in Moab this year? And how was it. I am headed down Friday for a few days of sun fun and beer. (Eddie McStiffs of coarse)

Thanks

Have you done it before?

I rode Porc Rim a few years ago and thought it was the Sh!t. I went back a couple weeks ago and got bored going down it. Just too much lazy cruising between technical sections. Amasa Back was better in my opinion. It has many more technical (but mostly ridable) sections one after the other. It's an out and back so you can scan for your downhill lines as you're going up.

I was there for 4 days...these were my rides: Slickrock, Poison Spider to Portal Trail, Moab Rim, Porc Rim, Gold Bar Rim, Amasa Back. I really wanted to do Top of the World but couldn't fit it in.

Let me know what rides you have planned. I'll offer some tips if I can.
