Runs from a skid site half way up Danzig 4x4 slogger road and follows on nicely from Electric Avenue. A bit harder than Electric Avenue. Can also be reached by climbing 4 Degrees and Connect Four. A bit easier than Borderline but still has a couple of sustained steep sections. You could also reach it by coming down the logging track from the Old Coach Road, but you lose a lot of height and the logging track has lots of unpleasant loose shingle and is not not recommended. Lower part can connect with the jumps alternative to the bottom of Borderline.
Weta replaces the destroyed Big weta that existed before the logging.

      This could be a fast track, lots of berms, a bit rocky but still fun, after a few runs could easily get some speed up. Great intermediate track.
