Notes from Karst: We came up from the Fairplay side and it was a chore and half getting up there. Very rocky and narrow. We started to go down on the other side, but we ran into some very steep sections. We did not know how much better or worse it was going to get so we turned around and came back the same way we came up. It was as much I what would want to volunteer to go up on. I could not have done it on my 1150GS, but the Challenge and the DR650 did OK.
