A very large Dodge Ram turbo diesel make it through the snow area Friday afternoon as we scouted the road for a Saturday climb. On Saturday morning a Ford mid size pick up was extracting a Dodge Grand Cherokee‘s failed attempt. As I hiked up, the Ford passed us obviously successful traverse. The ruts in the snow are deep and all but very high clearance vehicles will bottom out. I saw the Toyota mentioned in the 6/14 report going out as well as a different Grand Cherokee. You need very high clearance, skill, and luck. I and others wisely decided to park down from the snow 2.1 (gps) from the winter lot.
ALSO, this road is not one to take on with the Wagon Queen Family Truckster
yet people attempt and make it. I saw a Toyota mini-van up there. Wheel spinning has led to deep holes and washboard at 1.6 to 1.7 mi. from the winter lot. These became worse just Friday to Saturday.
