    Haven't heard anything about an X Fest this fall. Anyone have anything planned yet?

    Nothing planned yet, I'll be off Oct 25-30th and Nov 8-13th if anyone wants to plan it around one of those two weekends. I should even be healed up enough to go by then.

    The October dates (25-30th) are looking like the best bet for me, anybody want to nail those dates down, or let it get a little closer still before finalizing things?

    I'd like to do full PINTAC, and a friend wants to do Mumbai, other than that I'm up for pretty much anything.

    Oct 25-30 is ideal. I say we do it then. Chimney rock campsite?

    Yep the usual place, which is not right at the chimney rock TH for those who are new. It’s at the large dome that’s on the way to the TH. I’ll post coordinates later I’m on a phone at the moment

    5 days straight of X. Sounds burly. I might be able to come down for the 29th.

    Is anyone planning on arriving early enough to do a canyon on the 25th? I'm planning on arriving that night, but if anyone is going to be there early I might be able to make it that morning.

    Pretty much what it sounds like, we'll be doing X canyons for 5-6 days. Not sure what the attendance will be like this year, although last year it was large enough to split into 2 groups, one doing the hardest of the hard and the others easier fare. If you think you're ready for X canyons then I'll be doing some of the easier ones on the first day or two.

    And here I thought the X stood for 10. Sounds like a little over my pay grade but I look forward to seeing the photos!

    There will be people there doing non-X fare as well. The area has a lot to choose from. I anticipate we will be splitting groups most days.

    I may be able to join in this years X Fest (Sat-Mon). However, I'm not that interested in doing "X" canyons as yet. From Bootboy's last post it sounds like there will be others there doing non-X. I am just putting out some feelers to make sure that the non-X'rs will be there. Anybody??

    I made it out for the first few days. Turnout was paltry.

    Conditions were very tough and we ended up bailing out of DDI after an hour of fighting wet, crumbly rock. We did the lower (non-stemming) section of Long-branch on Friday.

    In other news, HITRR is in the best condition I've ever seen it. It was graded beyond Egypt rd on Wednesday.
