Lands End Road up to the Mesa is full of hairpin turns and steep drop offs, so what better idea than to drive it as fast as you can?

If you don't have a lead foot, need not apply at the annual Lands End Hill Climb.

Drivers in all types of vehicles, including stock cars, sprint cars, champ cars, ATVs, rock crawlers and in rally cars barrel up the hill at speeds of up to 110 miles per hour!

The course is 5.2 miles long, often along cliffs, and full of twists and turns.

Some contenders have even made it up the course in less than five minutes.

The Lands End Hill Climb is put on every year by the Colorado Hill Climb Association.
