Avalanche Part II

You put in the work to get your tube to the top of the hill... now it's time to reap your reward. Go down solo, or connect with your friends in a tube brigade. One thing is certain... it's an Abominable ride down the the hill at Devil's Head.

Himalayan Climb

Rocky Sled Pull

Inspired by Rocky IV (arguably the best Rocky ever), is our Rocky Sled Pull. Load your sled with weight, and pull it 40 yards out and back. When you’re done, unload your weight. We can hear the Rocky theme song already … “Getting Stronger…”.

Arctic Assault

It's a 50 yard crawl down low thru the snow, then get over the 4' wall, and repeat... another 50 yard crawl thru the snow and another set of 4' walls.

Difficulty / Skill / Strength 0
Completion % 0

The Apex

Holding the ropes, and keeping your feet off the ground, traverse across 3 sets of of A frame structures. Beware though, you'll have a 2 foot gap between each structure, that will require you to muster up your core strength.

Completion % 0

Summits Peak

This is a vaulted monkey bar, starting at 6' and peaking at 10' and back down to 6'. If you make it across, you'll need to ring the bell that sits just 2' off the ground. No feet allowed when ringing the bell, so get low, and keep your legs up. Core and upper body strength required for this one.

Difficulty / Skill / Strength 0
Completion % 0

Yeti's Lair

New for 2019, and still in test, is the Yeti's Lair. This 36' long inverted cargo net traverse is Abominable and will test the most seasoned OCR vet. You must stay under the cargo net, and keep you body off the ground the entire time. Starting at 4', peaking at 8' and holding at 12' length, then decline back to 4', this obstacle is a BEAST! Our prediction on completion is only 20%... prove us wrong!

Abominable Forest

Abominable Wall

It's an 8' wall... Give it all you got on your own, or enlist the help of a friend ... but you gotta get over it. No style points awarded.

Cliff Hanger

This ultimate transition wall will challenge your grip strength, balance, core strength, shoulder stability, and more. The obstacle starts off with a traditional 12' run with hand grips and foot steps, but then you'll transition to the center section where foot steps are removed and hand grips are replaced by looped rope. Get past the center section, and you'll have one more 12' traditional run before you ring the bell.
