    Hey,

    I just thought I’d let you know that the road has washed out... 51km up Redding Creek... we were up there the other weekend but there was snow blocking the pass still about 2km beyond the gray creek turnoff at the Red Hut (we travel from kimbo)... was going to go up this weekend to see if there was any changes due to the thunderous rain storms during the week... but my partner saw these photos on the book of face.

    Thought I’d share, in case any of you were looking to go across.

    Stay well everyone

    Steve.

    From what I’ve read, there was a bridge there, got washed out, so they put that culvert in... back to the drawing board I’d say :lol3

    Or a bit of speed and a decent sized kicker.

    Think a Zipline capable of transporting a moto bike would be the cat's arse!
