'The Lion's Back' - Dangerous 4x4 Climb

'The Lion's Back' is a sandstone ridge in Moab, Utah that is very popular among recreational 4 wheel drivers. The attraction and campground is now private property and no longer publicly accessible. The climb involves several hundred feet on a steep slope with grades approaching 60 degrees, and then a 5 to 9-point turn-around at the top of the rock before slowly descending the same way up.
