The Towers: Things To Do At The Top
SOMEBODY ALWAYS gets to the top first. Then the wait begins. Have some water. Maybe a candybar. Check on that squeek in your seatpost. Have some more water.
More people arrive, but you're still waiting for the guy who had to stop to take pictures. What to do? A quick game of chess?
Maybe, but actually there are a number of things to do at the top. Take the sandstone ledge that the highest tower is built on. It makes a dandy jungle jim, for descending and climbing both. You can roll it on the low end, and the high end great for hucking. The really sick people climb it too, as witnessed by the sequence shots below.
Going up or down, just about everybody angles across the sandstone shelf, partly because of the location of the tower immediately behind, and partly because the hucksters don't want to pancake on the flat Tower Rd. below.
Remember, GalbraithMt.com recommends studying all stunts like this before riding them the first time. Better yet, watch someone who knows what they're doing ride it.
