Takes you out to the back end of Makara Peak. Fast and techy. Starts off sidling along from Aratihi, before dropping down a ridgeline before back into a narrow corridor of manuka. Holds up well in the wet mostly due to the small amount of traffic.

Upper Leaping Lizard extension built in 2003 by Makara Peak Supporters.
