I see you posted the last picture of the easy stuff. It started getting pretty tough after that.
It always looks harder over the handlebars of a KTM

After snapping my collar bone I try to keep from going over the handlebars on the KTM.

I am in, but I am scared, I hope Wild Bill Kelso gets his gear shift fixed so he can show me the alternate way out, to avoid going back up Honda Hill
(I will be riding a Red Bike)

Looks like

OldtimerTC. Guy. Refokus, Wan, Utefan, Me, Mike955i & Mark on bikes. Roger (with my wife as co pilot) & Jersey Dave with Joanne as co pilot.

I'm good for an in and out, or counter clockwise through. The scenery is great either way. We'll see how everyone feels once we get to the Ovens & River.

High penalty for failure, though.
You found one of our Rock Crawling trails!! The name of this one escapes me now but the challenge of climbing this with a one ton jeep will not quickly be forgotten. How did you guys do riding up it?

I figured that's what it was. The rocks were slick from rock crawler tires polishing them. We went down it. You can see how that went in the ride report. Going up would have required more rock stacking. There was a pretty good step right at the bottom.
