Operation LOW ROLLER takes you on an out-and-back route to the top of Fletcher Peak (10,237ft) and is a less aggressive option than Operation HIGH ROLLER. Operation LOW ROLLER is still a real test of endurance and fitness.


Candidates must complete the 9 +/- mile route in under 6 hours to pass and under 3.5 hours to earn the GBF Operation LOW ROLLER Dog Tag.


Candidates will meet at the Trail Canyon Trailhead parking area. After 0600hrs, GBF Staff will give an event brief before checking candidates' kits. Candidates are advised to carry paper maps (waterproofed), in addition to their smartphone, for navigation. Once GBF Staff are happy with the candidate's kit, they will be released to begin the route.

Candidates finishing in under 3.5 hours will receive the highly sought-after 'GBF Operation LOW ROLLER’ dog tags.
