Was able to get about 2.1 miles up the road. Snow drifts are way too deep after this point (maybe 75% chance with a tractor). Rocks had fallen in road and we stopped and moved them in several spots. One big slide across road was barely passable to one side. Creek crossing expanded considerably in the one day we were up and it‘ll probably get wider with runoff. Still lots of snow up high.

Thanks much! Also, looks like a heftier vehicle made it up to about 2.4 mi as of today - just past the junction. Still two major rock slide obstacles.

I went up on 5/26 and had to move a number of rocks from the turnoff all the way to the first stream. Sounds like rock slides are really active right now. You can only get about 400' higher than the first stream, that is, if you can make it past the first stream. I don't think it's worth crossing right now.
