Got my 2WD Accord (6.2‘‘ of clearance) up to the camp spots a little past the radio towers. I did not scrap anything on the way up although I was tense driving up there due to not having great visibility due to the darkness. I waited until the sun had set before heading up there to give me the best chance of NOT running into an oncoming vehicles (a less than desirable situation given the narrowness and lack of turnoffs on the road). On the way down, I didn‘t run into any oncoming which is vehicles, but I did scrape a few times. It probably could have been avoided by taking a better line over the dips and riding my brakes harder. Evaluate the probability of running into a descending car and whether you‘re willing to take that chance as well as put strain on your car‘s brakes on the descent.
