The trail known as Cable Hill is intimidating. There is a high price for failure if you tip or roll. It’s a looong way down. Several people had attempted to climb the trail while we were there, but no one had made it when Sam Gillis, with Keith Bailey riding shotgun, showed us how it’s done. His Liberty makes plenty of power and is well bolted together with a 5.7L LS1 GM V-8, TH350, an Atlas II, 35-spline Dana 60 front, and a shaved 14-bolt rear. The trick seems to be to use the tires and power to dry off the rocks, roll back and hop up a ledge then repeat until you are at the top. Oh and you have to have a lack of fear for your life cause it’s steep and a looong way down.
