Stay on the main track all
the time to the next situation or if you are adventurous: I don't
want to be more precise to protect the innocent.
If you are clever stay on the
main track and drive until you reach number 22 below.
If not: Before a right curve
you will notice an track splitting off steeply to the right. It
can be seen climbing strongly on loose shale (eeeks!) while turning
(even more eeeks!)
The track is mostly used by
motorcycles and only rarely by cars. On the first hundred metres
it has already the left side much lower than the right, forcing
you to drive off-camber and giving you an excellent view sideways
down the mountain - all the way down to the valley ground 800 metres
Than you have the last serious
chance to turn around. An footpath comes up from the left here.
Driving down this will however put your Landrover on a VERY odd
angle. I don't recommend it.
Now the ascent is in front
of you. To the left you can see another wider rocky trail going
up but you will have trouble reaching it. The main track now climbs
up in an long off-camber left turn. Once you are engaged here you
will have to go up as driving down backwards is not an viable option.
You have to drive up but you
will encounter some larger places. At least large enough to turn
around in 5 or 6 backups. But then again you must go down this incline
In several places you will
not see the track over your bonnet. Have your passenger go out and
give you directions on where to drive. On many places the track
is not larger than an Defender, making it hard for anyone to get
out. Oh, yes, to the left and to the right are steep downhill slopes,
in some places all the way down - about 1000 metres.
If you drive this track it
must be absolutely dry. The slightest drizzle will make the stones
even more slippery and, in my opinion, too dangerous to drive. The
track CAN be driven the other way but it requires an very experienced
driver - and maybe an spare pair of unmentionables. Remember that
the error margin in some places is zero. Either you stay on the
track or you tumble down the mountain.
The tracks ends or better splits
after an last sharp uphill at the top station of an skilift. Turn
around the giant hanging counterweight and than keep left to the
most visible downhill track. Go down all the way until you come
to the clearly identifiable main track.
