The jeepers had go over this obstacle in a figure-of-eight kind of fashion. Start the Climb > Turn right and continue for a few meters > Get down on the other side > Climb up again > Turn left and continue for a few meters > Get down to finishing point.

Well, he/she too wanted to be part of the action!

Got the chance to sit next to Arka and experience the trail from within the cabin. I noticed that he didn't use the clutch or brakes, just modulated the throttle to maintain the momentum and speed required to get up and down the climbs.

Awesome OTR even though it was a short one; vast and rich enough for a first-timer like me. Many many thanks to our host Major Roy (AZ) and Arka for the trail/obstacles. Three (or more) cheers to the jeepers and offroaders who made it that day.

I sent out whatever videos & photos I took to Vishnu. If any of you need it too, PM me your email address and I'll send you the link.

I'll just post a couple of videos here. Mind you, the way these two drove around the obstacle, it might make you think the obstacle is a silly joke, whereas it is anything but that.

Here's Vikram:



Here's Arka. There was a discussion that it was easy for Arka since he did it without sunglasses on but I am sure he would have done it eyes closed!
