Dennis, China Wall does look to be pretty steep. How does the RZR do on it - no problem I'd bet. Thanks for sharing the pics with us.

China Wall is extremely steep.... I tried 3 times and only made it twice. I feel lucky to have made it as there were two other RZR-S there that could not make the climb. The difference in our rides was I have a DDP clutch with adjustable weights and one was stock and the other was some other brand of clutch. I was only doing 7 to 10 mph over the top. I do not have any othe performance mods on my "S" other than the clutch. The "Makin'Trax" springs have also been a very good improvement in the stock spring ride.

So what the heck do you do when you don't make it???? I envision either backing down the entire hill, or worse, rolling down the hill?

You said it, if you don't make it you have the pleasure of backing down as that is what I did, you can tell it can tip over if not carefull. If you have enough speed and you feel you are not going to make it you can turn on the hill..... In all the years of going to the dunes I have seen two rides roll down that hill, one Jeep and one RZR. No one hurt seriously but could not be driven out.

I does look steep, I bet it was spooky back off that hill. I the China Wall just a sand hill or is it dune? I have heard that the sand changes during wind storms.

China Wall is out in the dunes and a hill, been there for many years and when you get to the top just more sand dunes. The view from the top looking down is enough to make you think twice...... :shock: and if you must back down, you do so verrrrry slowly.
