Weeks 2 & 3

The crew’s fourth year at Bear Mountain in NY saw a change in strategy, with two double sessions scheduled in an effort to cut down on travel time.

The 2009 work site after surface material was scraped away and material for crib wall was stockpiled on the uphill side of the treadway

Tools of the trade

Pat and Neal jockey a step into position

what the heck was I going to do with this again…?

Catherine may have thought she’d get away with it, but someone will notice that the snatch block is missing!
