Regarding difficulty, and comparing the RL to trails in the National Park, we concluded that if you string together the grind of the Dodson leg and the Blue Creek wash of the OML, the Saddle climb and exposed, up-hill grind of Mesa de Anguila, and the rugged ups and downs of Marufo Vega, and then add 20% more difficulty, then you are close to grasping the RL. The fact is that none of those trails have the boulder hopping, the pour-off climbing, or the rock-fall descent of the RL (not to mention the heart-stopping climb out of Acebushes Canyon - after which I almost stepped on a Black-Tailed Rattler).We concluded that tough never takes a break along the RL. Even the jeep road is tough trail.In other words, IT WAS GREAT.
