Hey mate, looks like a great lane....:D

Not surprised he is Fooked, looks like a bit of a slog (especially on a HEAVY 4 stroke :p )

I Need to get out with you guys when I get my bike.....Two weeks to go....:frown:

jonny agreed but even thats getting worn out and easier ;) not managed to clean that one yet although holingsclough is pretty easy in the dry.

Would probably be easy on a dt soft as shit suspension weak ass smooth power lots of rubber on the tyres not knobbley's so yeah I think it could be done on one of those pieces of shit :)

i think we both know the answer to this ;)

i've not seen it cleaned by anyone and i've been out with some very handy riders i have seen some very second hand bikes trying it though. one to mentions was a crfx with its radiator ripped clean off lying a big slab with the lad crying. Its a bike killer rather than a challenge and something you would see in the romaniacs / erzberg extreme sections.

dt125 yeah right, i would pay money to see that :D

Point taken I can only comment on what I see in the video and that looks do-able to me I've climbed cleaned most climbs around some after many attempts I'd have to know where it is and how long to see if I'd have a go

re

yeah i'd like to go out there some time and exchange lanes, i've climbed most tricky climbs around the peak district and the one ive found to be one of the trickyist is the one at the quarry the soft sandy one which now has a step in it the shifts to the left it's only a short climb but interesting and can be a bitch, there's one at llangollen which is very rutted we call the widow maker thats practically impossible when wet, out of 35 + attemps ive made it once clean and dragged the bike up 6 or 7 times it's awesome
