Engage granny gear and spin it up, leaving plenty of energy in reserve. This track is shorter than Kinda Grinder, and also gets you to the top faster, but don't rush. It's pretty relentless. Park map no 40.

Access Info

Go left off Tank Stand Down after about 50m. Turns left off Kinda Grinder and ends at the same place.

      Dry, with lots of pine needles on the ground making it a hard grind up the hill

       An amazingly built up track with the perfect grade for riding up. Corners are not to steep and lots of rest spots on the traverses across to the next corner.
