    my mate took these two pics of it. You cant really see it in those photos though unfortunately, but, its so hardcore theres no ways you could even walk up or down it, it would be quite a difficult climb on foot.

    Photos never seem to do it any justice... Here is a pic of when we were last there, it does give a bit of an indication of how steep it really is. The Kia did remarkably well, but in the end couldn't make it all the way up, just for sake of reference.

    Yes, that section is the tricky bit. The left line up there is the best or was when I did it a couple months back. But I did have front, centre and rear lockers on.

    Its a balance of momentum, line and traction that is required

    The only one we didnt do was that number 10 though. I just cannot see how that can be done at the moment, it looks totally impossible.
    we popped through last minute for a quick drive around the same weekend, Glad you enjoyed it, obstacle 10 is tricky, and that last bit at the top feels like a ton of commitment at the bottom haha even with lifts and tires it still makes my tummy tighten. Sadly it is very dry, and the lakes and ponds all but dried up for now, till the rains come.

    The outride has sadly changed and no more access to the parks board side, which was up to the lookout point (with the gravesite) which was always my favorite part of the outride, as there is the one really tricky climb up the side of a cliff and a 180-degree hair-raiser before descending again.

    Yip, I think they have closed that off due to some extremely rare plant being found to have made the top of the ridge it's home.
