    There are some old videos, a short and a long one, the short video is edited to show just the successful climb and may be misleading. The Longer video is much more revealing, showing the struggle we had to get to the top.

    I went with the left hand option and got it halfway cleared away.

    Once again , watching the video afterwards it seems way easier than it does in real life. I can assure you that I am only doing enough to just get through wit the Hardbody , an though it does not have front lockers, it is lightweight and those soft Grabbers have very good grip.

    Wow!
    A LOT of real HARD work there!!!
    I guess ambient temperature could be problematic as well.
    Yes, videos tend to make terrain look flatter or let's say less steep than reallity.
    When I look back on some clips we have taken over time during our trips (with a basic trailer behind !!) it never gives the true picture and looks like a stroll in the park.
    The reality however is just a little different, especially when travelling alone. (Madness, but yes we have done it.)
    Now it is over to the younger guys.
    The trails at Klein Pela I would say from these vids are waaaay beyond my abilities and experience excepting as a passenger with those more experienced in the driving seat.
    Respect for all the hard work and effort going in here.
    I have to say again "WOW!"
    This time I will not say "Eish!".
    Oh! I just did!

    A trail is an easy 4, with a good spotter most drivers will be able to do it and E trail is a Grade 3, there is something for everyone.

    I cleared away the big rock in the middle of the next climb, it took some planning and preparation to prevent it ending up in the way lower down on the trail.

    It is truly sad, but unfortunately I have to withdraw from this trip. I will still keep eyes and ears open for any news, pics or videos.

    Please enjoy on my behalf as well. I hope someone else can make use of this spot.

    Andrew, this has been tempting from the start, I had some issues back then, however it may just work now. Will it be ok if I let you know either way later this morning?
