Slide of the Month Extra-Philmont Cimarroncito (D-clip)

May 2022

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane


Cimarroncito is known for rock climbing, repelling and climbing walls (both outside and inside). One of the things I'm confused by in this slide (based on the patch) is why this D-clip is not locking. 

Carved from southern (pallet) pine it was a leveled slide with sky and the mountain at the lowest levels. The lead levels are the focus as the rope passes through the D-clip. Painted with hobby paints, lettered with waterslide paints and finished with a couple coats of poly
