Using Camel Back Climb, or The Straw?

Camel Back I think, where is The Straw? I'm assuming the Camel Back one is where the blue route goes to the right and only the red one goes to the left up the climb that nearly killed me Eye-wink Seems to just keep going and going and going!

the nastier straight up fire road is the "Camel back Climb"

The camel back climb it was! Is tr straw the track the turns off to the right just as you start the camel back climb?

It is.

How accurate is this meant to be?

I did around 37:30 straight from the car. Second lap started as just a fun one and even though I layed it down on a loose bit still came in under 1:16. Both up camelback.

If you want to see some really quick times though, just look at the HMBA results.

omg... went up camel back for first time last week (as my friend and i took wrong track before and ended up on shorter track) and HOLY HELL we just about made it all the way up.. .were were totally buggered hahaha... hardcore hill.. loved it though... today we tried the straw and i actually prefer camel back! haha... hate riding up hills and trying ot turn the bloody bike around sharp bends and turns - im a beginner and when lose momentem up a hill im screwed! haha

It's insane especially for unfit blokes like me! I knew my hot lap time wasn't all that quick but seriously guys your times make me look like I'm stopping half way around for a picnic! Can't wait to get sub 45 minutes... If anyone feels pity and would like to register a time slower (if that's possible) than mine it would be greatly appreciated Eye-wink
Ha ha, happy days Eye-wink

I just found out... 'The Straw' that broke the 'Camel's Back' climb.

Get it? I also found out about lots of the names & the reasons why. Conrod straight, Ross river fever, Sallad bowl, etc. Smiling
