Fins N Things Hill Climbs

I was going through some earlier video and came across two segments that demonstrate the incredible traction you get on the "slickrock" here in Moab. If you place your hand on the sandstone, it feels like sandpaper. Although the following video does a good job of showing the steepness of the hills, it still does not capture the feeling you get when you are sitting behind the wheel.

I understand the name "slickrock" came from early settlers whose wagons with metal covered wheels and horses with metal horseshoes had trouble navigating the area.
