Gary:

Have you taken the shorter loop here.  It goes east from the campground and goes up on the heights above the campground and returns to the main road just south of the campground after going down some pretty awesome switchbacks.  It makes the hair on your back stand up.  They are much tighter and more technical than the Circleville switchbacks just not as many.

Yep been there done them Smiley But was not going to advertise them to just everyone. Last report I had was they were very badly eroded and as you said much more difficult than some on the Paiute.
