Knarly Descent at Jemez Mountain Trail Run

  • Sliding on all fours
  • Grabbing tree limbs
  • Skidding sideways

Welcome to the Jemez Mountain Trail Run!

Here is a cool video I found on youtube by Thomas T. from this year’s 50 mile trail run adventure, highlighting one small section of BA descent.

(If you can’t see the video, click here.)

Too cool! I need to get me some Jemez.

Have a great holiday weekend everyone.

Be active – Feel the buzz!

    No doubt bro! Photos are cool but video adds another dimension when you see a hand grasping for a tree limb in order to slow down and moderate sized rocks rolling down the slope with no interest in stopping…

    I’ll go back, but only for the 50K. Never again for the 50 mile!! Haha. Very ouch, baby! Let me know when y’all are ready!

    Mark – “Never” is one of the loose words in the ultra endurance world. Give it some time… 🙂

    That was a very gnarly decent…300 feet of terror. I had a water bottle in one hand and an ice pop in the other…just glad we didn’t have to go up that sucker (though the next ascent would proceed to destroy me!).

    Mark S – Funny I like the ice pop…although I probably would have finished it off before heading down a cliff wall. 🙂

    This is a great run and a great section as you plummet into the Valles Caldera.
    I don’t think I did it as gracefully as the guy on the film though!

    Hey Mariela – Crazy stuff. I look forward to experiencing this course within the next couple of years. Congrats to you for being out there!
