      Last year, I was too chicken to walk across this log (the one
      right out of the Sherman aid station), and shinnied across
      straddling it. The nubbins of branch were kind of hard on the
      butt, but much better than falling into a swift creek at 3 am.
      There IS a way to do it safely.

      No way! This is Hardrock. If we start to dummy-down the

      Bear Creek, Ouray or helium ballons to make the climbs
      easier? Participants should rely more on their own ingenuity
      and less on the race organization to safely and successfully
      negotiate the challenges of the course.
