Is anyone able to get up Chainless nowadays (W to E)?  It's almost unrecognizable in this video.  I sessioned all the harder lines on the east end of DD today and I couldn't even get close on that one.  The run up is just so eroded now.

Hardly anything in that video is recognizable, and it's been a year since my last ride there, so I bet it's even worse now.

What is the time stamp for “chainless” in the video? I’m really bad with the feature names.

Chainless isn't a feature, more of a sections of trail (an there is a subtitle "Chainless" - in the video and he's embedded it with the timestamp - so it should start on Chainless. The most notable portion is when it 90 downhill, off camber on a slab at the end. I assume the reference is riding it W to E (opposite of the video). Making that 90 uphill that is tough to ride...though the very top before the Cradle has always been tough. Hell, I built that shite I haven't have ridden all of DD in quite a while.

Geeze. I didn’t click on the video link before posting. Don’t I look stupid. Thanks.

Correct.  The timestamp for the actual feature is 2:52, but going in the opposite direction.  I got it a couple times a year or two ago, but I can barely even get my front wheel on the top now.

The first "up" W->E there, I could do a month ago, but 1-ride-weeks have taken a toll and I've had no luck there the last two or three rides. The second "up" just before the Cradle... yeah, I haven't gotten up that in over a year.

So the Chainless section - specifically before the Cradle was earmarked for significant rework - YEARS ago. Josh and I knew it was getting bad and would need work soon. Since I am no longer the steward and not planning to work out there... you can give feedback to Logan. There is some room for a slight reroute, but I think that eroded area could be "built up and armored". I thought it might also be a neat place for wood. 

I've always thought a wood option at Truth or Dare would be cool too.

I'll take a look at this this weekend and report back here. I'll need help whether we decide to do a slight reroute, rework, or build a small wood feature. Besides Saturday long runs, my weekend schedules are looking good, so we could get a group of us to tackle this soon. There are other areas that are also needing attention. 

Truth or dare. Anyone remember when someone moved the diving board rock? What a PITA.
