The 2011 Gorge Rat Gathering at Linville was a big hit. I didn't get to spend all the time there I'd planned, but had a great time. On Thursday 8 of us made the loop down through Henson Canyon, across the foot of Westface Wall and up Fantasy Creek and Canyon. Great trip with a good bunch of Rats. 5 of the group stayed in for the night on Midcliff Ridge. Hammock camping made it possible in a thick jungle-like area.
Here are a few clips from that trip. Started at BRT and made the loop through Huckleberry, Red, Henson, Westface, Fantasy, Windy Point, Lower Cross, and Midcliff trails. Jimd, TZBrown, Mtncmpr, Carolinasbackerpacker and Puf camped on Midcliff Ridge. Wigg, Hangin' Buritto and I came out Midcliff to Yellow Brick Road and back to the cars.
