Chambers Pillar Feedback

Dirt road from Maryvale to Chambers Pillar good condition.
Small sand dunes no longer a problem, as they now have a river gravel base, on their crests, which substantially improves traction. Road into Chambers Pillar is negotiable by 4WD, SUV's, and adventurous 2WD vehicles with clearance. Minor sand drifts and creek washouts on the way.
From Stuarts Well to Chambers Pillar and return, is about a 7 hour round trip with 6 gates to open/close.

Hi Jenko
Sounds like they have taken the fun out of the trip compared to what it was like years ago.

All in the name of progress.

Cheers

Well the off road track upgrade (sand dune consolidation in particular) , does make this sensational location, more accessible, to more travellers, with less M/V wear and less fuel consumption, but its still quite an adventure going out into this remote area. It was 44 degrees when i went there on 06JAN08, and I didnt see another traveller all day...Cheers...
