This is a spot I really enjoy in my 1981 Hilux, especially on the way back out the trail. If you take it to the right then you can encounter a deceivingly difficult section where you often see trucks walk right through it and others really, really hung up. It's all about proper tire placement and is extra challenging because you approach it in a small climb resulting in zero visibility over the crest.

I wanted to play here but as you can see even stopping for a picture caused the group to catch up to me.

Stopping for the group to catch up again after the long-since-closed famous 'Thousand Dollar Hill' where Marlin engaged the World's first Triple Transfer Case on a very steep and dangerous descent for the very first time back in 1996.

Approaching the famous Little Sluice!
