    Holy crap! 45 degrees? I'd be afraid to start going down again!

    You see on the first image (515) the lighter part of the slope, then the harder part seen downward (518) and upward (528 and 530). Maybe you can see a bike trace (528). Looking at some images (531) I discovered the slope is lighter than I thought (around 17 on the screen). But a good "practical" idea of the incline is a horse slip on 529, with my foot for scale.

    Now, you know that slope with dry soil. It's a quite different thing in rainy days with that sticky clay.

    That looks like it would be exciting enough dry, let alone wet...

    When in 4 WD this machine has awesome pulling power and traction with the ATV type tires.
    I went up a slope that was probably 45* on my BX.

    pictures can be deceiving but that doesnt look like a seroious slope that would cause concern for a RTV with ATV or r1 type tires. good luck

    I have climbed hills just like those in my RTV900 in relatively wet conditions.
