Used to go down there a few years back and I've fallen in the exact same way as the guy on that video, and sprained my ankle falling to the side and not landing right just where that girl stopped and got off :oops: .

It's rideable if you are good on technical stuff but I think the bad weather this year seems to have worn away a lot more of the soil so it is more tricky than it used to be. Don't think I'll be tempting it these days, bottle has eroded over the years :cry:

Rode towards Coe crag yesterday in the snow. It was too deep :lol: :lol:
I was riding and leaving foot marks at the same time. Lack of light and heavy going meant i didn't get far though. After the initial few hundred yards where a quad bike bike had been pulling a kids sled, i had the place to myself :twisted: :D 8) Only a handful of deer tracks, but otherwise virgin snow :D Had to walk for a bit, so decided to turn back

I'll get some pics up tonight :D
