On Thursday Oct 12th , we trailed Seven Mile Rim, which is a moderate trail with several difficult spots and natural sites such as Uranium Arch and Monitor and Merrimac Butte. One of the interesting portions is descending to the base of Uranium Arch and the subsequent ascend.
On the way to Wipeout Hill, we wheeled between the Monitor and Merrimac and passed the two ?burned toast? rocks, but then proceeded to get lost, at least according to Wells? book. We did find a road around one of the Buttes that lead to Wipeout Hill which, at first impression, makes you reminisce about the way you came, but is the source of ?on second thought? after you find the line. Jim, in his D90, was spotted by his wife, Mary on the top section, which is the most difficult. He demonstrated the controlled descent. I followed his lead, and then decided to take the YJ back up the steepness of the hill. After not encountering any difficulties, I descended again, and we proceeded to take in the scenery further down the trail.
