Was able to make it to 8,800 feet. Road continues to be dry up until that elevation. There is one tough spot where the road dips down that poses an issue when driving out because of ice. I did not get enough momentum prior to this section and ended up getting stuck. Fortunately, I was able to winch myself uphill. If you gain enough speed prior to this section, you can probably coast up. I think it‘s about 100 feet or so. Where we parked is 4.15 miles from the shelter at Lake Como.
