Made it up past 11,000 ft elev in an Audi A4 with AWD, but got stuck well before the first mine on the Rt which is around 11,250 ft elev.
Took me 2:45 to get myself unstuck.
Word to the wise: park under 11,000 ft elev and boot it.
I parked 2.3 mi up the road from the Horseshoe Campground.
The shoulder was dry just under 11K feet.
You MAY be able to get up higher with a high clearance 4WD and chains.
As posted 12/3/11, there is deep snow with ruts.
