Stairway to Heaven - Riding the Makhondjwa Mountains

Colon was next up. He took a different approach with a balls to the wall attack on the climb. It looked bloody impressive, but he eventually got stuck on the steep part of the climb

Colon even got proper air time coming up the first step, but his landing sent him off course and he had to start paddling his way up slowly

I was up next....... swallowed the lump in my throat and got going. Had a fairly good run going up, but ran out of momentum and couldn’t make it up one of the big steps.

Toppled over attempting it (see video later) and needed both Colon and Mark’s assistance to get up the step.
