Project on the backside of the large boulder. I spent quite a few hours chainsawing and clearing this area. This is the gem waiting to go. . .

Hahaha - Truth be told it was two massive trees that fell ontop of the main boulder years ago (hence the name of the area, Tree Tops). I cleared dead wood to get access to the boulder's face. Let me see if I can't find the video.... yup here it is:

Can't tell from the video, but you better have been wearing safety goggles... Feb 26, 2013

Ha, safety googles were the LEAST of my worries! This was my first time leaning over the lip of a 8' boulder trying to chainsaw a 1000 lb log. Fun stuff honestly. Almost as fun as hanging off a loop of webbing tied 9' off the ground on the same tree your trying to lob the top off cause it's a dead hanger over the landing zone. Feb 27, 2013
