With the heavy rain, the road is getting very difficult. The creek crossings are shallow, but 30ft wide. Lots of large puddles. Overall, I would not attempt the road without a truck-based, high clearance, short wheelbase vehicle. The road is roughly as bad as the Wetterhorn road (hence the cut-and-paste). Much to our amazement, someone did make it up with a Sante Fe but I strongly discourage it. I carted out a mangled 6ft piece of someone‘s bumper when I left.
