    Dang Leor!! Look at that climbing!! LEGIT!! Well done!

  2. Leor Pantilat

    Sally, the climbing only tells part of the story :) A good chunk of the adventure is a real bushwhack on rugged, very overgrown trail - not runnable. Ready for battle with high gaiters, board shorts and gloves!

  3. Eric Schranz

    Wow, sounds like a great run!

  4. Sally McRae

    Now that's my kind of adventure!! Heck yeah! And ...board shorts!! YESSS!

  5. Jill Homer

    I've been curious about the current condition of the Big Sur Trail. Thanks for the update.

  6. Brian Lucido

    Yeah, rad trails out there, huh? Wish I could go with you.

  7. Leor Pantilat

    Brian, 100% agree. In follow-up reading I saw your backpack adventure you did in the area a few years ago - awesome! It's wild and remote in those canyons. We were able to access "Rainbow Falls" from underneath via the South Fork Big Sur River since water levels are so low right now.

    dumb question, but does this point to point route require two cars? looks incredible

  10. Leor Pantilat

    Martin, this did require two cars. However, it can easily be made into a complete loop by taking Coast Ridge Road back to Big Sur Station instead of going down Boronda Ridge.
