By far, the thing that helped me the most up the difficult obstacles is steady gas in low gear. We were watching full-built rigs just flooring it trying to get up three feathers. I just held the gas steady and let the vehicle do the work, whereas their $40,000 some odd dollar machines were struggling.

3 Feathers has about 5-6 different routes. Some require skinny pedal while others are slow and steady. I've got buddies who could do any route they chose up it. I've only made 4 routes up it. The others or too much for a built 80. My favorite is more or less the center. Kind of a V notch thing.

In the video when you said "watch my sliders" if you had turned a bit right and rolled up that notch, thats the route I was talking about. Three Feathers changes a lot due to rain and usage. I haven't been out there in a while. It's looks a bit more like it used too, pretty rutted. Every once in a while, the FS cleans it up a bit.
