    I am confused a bit.

    That is where Pieter Blaauw and Myself went up.

    So Attie is lying a bit.

    Rubicon, Jimny, Triton and SWB Pajero.

    Why did you go down and not up there?

    We came from the bottom, made a 110 degree turn left and went up and then a 110 degree turn right again at the top, called the "Z" bend.

    Glad you got out safely as it is a bit daunting.

    Eurard, you must read my first post a bit slower

    The sticky situation I was in was because I didnt climb out to look at the obstacle.. I was under the impression the trail was going straight once on top and not 110 deg right again..

    Oom Attie did warn me to cllimb out if I cant see on top.

    So yeah, that was me, trying to turn my car around to come down again (only option at that point in time)

    Just a bit of fun I think.
    There is a sign at the bottom of the mountain on the left hand path (lots of loose soil and rocks) that says "Rubicon". Flipside added the "+Jimny", after we went up with the Jimny's, but a GV also went up.

    Did anyone try the rocky part of the trail on the side of the hill? The markings of some guide lines is serious stuff.We tried some lines and almost rolled with a few side slides. Any pics of someone doing the high ones?

    Not all of those markings are intended for standard or modified production cars. Occasionally there are some "extra modifieds" or pipe cars that go play there.

    We talk about the piece of rock trail on the side of the hill. Their is a nice one I am sure a X trail will make, the one above the small trees. My Rubicon slided half way up about a meter down with35's on at 0.8 bar diffs front and rear on. PS remember the pics. The little gravel road up I will do with my wifes Terios at 110km/h.

    I cant figure out which mod is next: Diff locks or a Winch.. hehehe
