On 9/30 it was barely RAV4-able. There was mud and several puddles, but no snow. At the sign for Crystal/Schofield Pass (rt) and Lead King Basin (lft) I went left. That road will challenge cars with longer wheel bases. It wasn‘t too bad except for one exposed narrow switchback that was muddy - I decided I would not return that way for fear of sliding off the road. Returned the other way: while supposedly shorter, it certainly didn‘t take any less time and there are some rocks worthy of my sister‘s 4" lifted jeep with 33s. Got down okay, but scraped 4 times.
