||This Track has been for as long as I can remember, and still is MVO.
Anyway, since it's on here.
This is up there with the hardest, if not the hardest track in the grampians. The majority of the track is easy, some dirt areas are dangerous if its rained (shear drops off side) otherwise is no problem.
If going downhill (south) the rock climb is safe to take in anything with stock clearance, 31" AT's, and nothing else... Just be smart, be aware you WILL slip and skid in places, so if you are not experienced, best learn elsewhere (like Launders Track, which is open to public and excellent!!)
The hard way, is going up. You need a REAL 4WD, but stock clearance is ok, you may touch on some loose rocks, so shift them if concerned. All Terrains of standard size is acceptable, but let your tyres down, a LOT, I mean, 8psi should be a starting point for AT's, and 14psi for MT's. Without diff locks you may need a few attempts at a few spots, and only 1 ledge you will get stuck on. Winch over this and you'll be fine. Front or rear lockers will get you over it if you drive well (correct line, hand throttle, somewhere around 2500rpm in 1st low, 3000rpm for 31" AT's). This is a GREAT fun track, but if you are running Cooper STT or any AT's it WILL rip chunks out of tyres, it is very hard going, sharp rocks, you will spin with lockers, articulation and low pressures. Good tyres that are good on rocks (basically any MT's other than coopers) are reccomended, otherwise you will get tyre damage.
This is a honestly serious track, but you don't need a highly modified vehicle, clearance is not an issue, sto stock suspension is fine. Lockers are not needed, without them, you will need a easy winch over 1 ledge. Standard size tyres are fine, but if not good quality and down, will take damage. Plenty of places to turn if you don;t have a winch, but it is dangerous to back down, and I highly recommend at least a winch. do NOT go alone!
