And lastly, Superman

Now I probably have no right to speak here, as I did not try it myself (I have an excuse, but I doubt anyone wants to hear it). But the two guys who made it up, made it look pretty easy, and the two guys who failed, made it look hellishly scary.

My opinion: the "correct line" on this obstacle is about 2" wide. Get it right, and it's a fairly simple obstacle. Get it wrong, and there's almost no way in hell you're going up here, although double lockers and crawler gears may work.

So it comes down to the skill of the guide in showing the line, and the skill of the driver in interpreting the guide's directions...

Great pics Peter!!

I fully agree with Peter on this obsticle. From inside the car you really have no idea where you are (similar to Koos se Klim) and have to rely on the guide to indicate the correct speed and line.

In my case I was not taking the correct line and a bad call from my side was that I was going up too fast. The combenation of the two made it very dificuilt/ not possable to do the obsticle and my LF rim tells the story of how hard this ended.

Thank you Peter
Great pics as usual.

Me and Tijmen took a similar line and it looked easy. My passenger had his eyes closed and knew nothing until we stopped at the top.

Alex Botha had two challenges. Worn back shocks and a malfunctioning locker. Add to that a guide that resembled a windmill in a blizzard and the result was some seat cleaning.

Good times!!!
