This is a CLIMB, a technical CLIMB. It is challenging, not very scenic on the way up, but the destination is Killer Viewpoint. Simply incredible, and I do mean Killer. It's almost 2,500 feet to the floor of the canyon. The Moencopi formation has gone absolutely mad below. Sunset on this spot may be a reason to live. The ride starts out as a grunt and hardly ever lets up. It is pretty straight forward and nearly impossible to get lost on, but since you'll have your head down, you should pay attention to a couple of spots where faint spurs can suck you in. The trailhead is a bit confusing with a bunch of spurs heading out in four directions. The one you want is to the far right going up wrapping around the left of that boring hill. Trail Surface: 4WD track. Climb up. Ride down. Loose rock, ledges, bedrock, sand and a bit of slickrock and hardpack.
