    Decomposed Granite

    Hi All,

    Quick clip here.  This is an outake from our 'Extreme Slope' Episode a while back.  In 'Extreme Slope', John and the team had to stabilize an extremely erosive slope made out of decomposed granite.

    Decomposed Granite is some pretty trippy stuff.  What looks like solid rock can crumble as soon as you touch it.  Tough to anchor on, tough to stabilize.

    This clip (which appears as an extra on the DVD), John goes into detail about Decomposed Granite, what it is, and some of the troubles with it.

    Hope you enjoy the clip...

      This is an outake from our great incline scene a while back. In compelling slant, John and the group needed to balance out a to a great degree erosive incline made out of disintegrated stone.
