Stories, information and comments from Dead Horse Gap climbers
Story by Martyt Aitken from Bright, Australia, submitted on 04/04/2014
One of the hardest climbs in Australia. The first 5km are 347 vertical metres including some low % parts but has sections over 10%. The 2nd 5km climbs 365m including some downhilss, so sections up to 16%. The last 5km climbs 311m but the forst 2km are over 10%. This is a hard climb due to the very steep sections and not a lot of rest in between.
