Snoral not required as the depth upto 2 and 1/2 feet.
Doable with normal 4WD vehicles
The deeper river crossings have been taken off due to heavy rails.

This is the same day as the Coorg Mahindra Great Escape. Any reason why this was scheduled the same day? Some guys would have wanted to attend both if they were on different days.

Anyway, this weekend won't work for me.

Mahindra great escape allows even 2wd vehicles, due to which many offroaders don't feel like taking part.The Somwarpet guys know this very well & are organizing it on 8th.Moreover they donot want it to clash with the Sakleshpur event.They have got a very good response till date & will be an event to look forward to.

It also clashes with a Team-BHP moderator's wedding, therefore few of us will be missing it.

All the best guys, have a safe and thrilling event. Croog is always one of the best scenic places to watch, wish to join on an OTR there at least once.

Default Slush Fest.

Excellent terrain coupled with incessant rains,made this one great event.Enjoyed it throughly.However,we could complete only 60% of the trail as most vehicles had to be pushed,towed or winched at most places.
Expecting some sooper pics from Sha.
