Sinks of Gandy WVa

Postby rvrrat » Thu Dec 23, 2010 7:33 am

This is it. The Sinks of Gandy at Yokum Knob in WVa is the best ridin' I have found around here. Really like a little Skyline. Tons of room and some huge drift lines and good climbing to play with. Works great with the NW wind we get here alot. We are getting our base set up with good cover now. I wish I had some better pics to show. More to come. JR

Alright now. I got my hands on some better pics here. I am thrilled to be able to use a machine to access this great terrain. No crowds or noise. Just me and my buds out in the woods. I can't imagine gettin' out in some of those places out west or in Alaska with a machine. I gotta get it together some day. JR

Great pics, I really like the look of that cornice with wind blowing at it. Sweet! Extra Credit for tele too.
