Part 5 of Ultimate Adventure 2017. Day Seven began with some parking lot repairs in Hurricane, Utah, before the group made the short drive from town to Sand Hollow OHV for some technical rockcrawling and high-speed sand dune action. San Hollow is a completely open off-road play area with incredible sandstone obstacles.
We slid in behind our local trail leaders, Rich Klein and Woody Swearingen, locked the hubs, and were climbing crazy-cool obstacles within 100 feet. With tacky sandstone providing insane traction, impossible lines are possible. As the Ultimate Adventure group made its way through the twisting, ledge-filled, off-camber terrain we eventually got to the last rockcrawling obstacle of the day called The Chute, a 150-foot-tall nearly-vertical wall that everybody needed to climb to get to the dunes. Take the right line and there’s no problem, but if you fall off the line your reward will be a tumbling roll straight to the bottom. Some had no problem, some had to back down and fiddled around a bit for the right line, but all the Ultimate Adventure participants eventually made it up to the reward of Sand Hollow’s dune area. Once again, horsepower reigned supreme here and those with the most put on the best show, railing corners and going airborne for the cameras.
