Cliff Out is a source for mountain biking, climbing, hiking, backpacking, canyoneering and traveling tips, trip reports, gear reviews and inspiration.

The term “Cliff Out” refers to route finding while on a mountain or in a canyon and coming to a ledge, and a perception, that there are no other options than to turn around. My dream is to adventure, take a few risk and experience life to the fullest.

Before You Travel, Do This to Your Phone

I recently had my phone stolen while traveling to Iceland, and fortunately, I was able to recover everything within a few days except a dozen pictures and a few application specific items like my list for my packing list app. Even if you haven't explicitly made an effort to backup your data you may be in luck as Google, Apple and your organization (if it's a work phone) may have automagically set some of these up for you.

I've done the Enduro, Gowdy Grinder, 40 in the Fort, Gunnison Growler, Stone Temple 8 and the Laramie Enduro is still my favorite mountain bike race. The rest are still incredibly fun but overall, the Enduro is the best organized, supported and offers the best combination of technical and flowing trail. Plus, it's one giant loop, you don't re-ride a single section! 111K Endurance Mountain Bike Race - Filmed with a Hero GoPro - Music by The Crystal Method - Filmed and Edited by Jess Watts (Racer 552, 7:46)
