    I was up there about 3 weeks ago, a few patches of snow/ice, but my 4x4 Ranger made it through with no trouble, you should be in the clear.

    I was up there yesteday. Couldn't pick a worst day to go up. Stormy weather and non stop rain. Road is blocked about 2 miles up by a gigantic tree trunk. Must have fell from the top. But it's also blocked by trash that people have left as well.

    :thumbdown:Good to see the blockage hasn't stopped lowlifes from dumping garbage.

    as of today i am guesing that most of the roads are impassable, prettty serious wind out here yesterday. please do everyone a favor and take a trash bag and clean up the area you decide to shoot at, all areas up there need cleaned up. i am guessing that if we all haul out more than we take in sooner or later it wont be such a sh!!thole.

    I was up there yesterday, easy drive up. Lucked out and got a good couple hours of good clear shooting. Seems like a bunch of dumbies shot down a couple more trees. The roads were good. Ended up taking more trash out than we made, which is always good to do.

    I was up there on Saturday and there's still a tree blocking the road about a mile up. More trash then ever.

    If I'm out that way this weekend, I'll see if the road is passable.

    Up there today. Road has been cleared of a huge stump, or at least enough for a truck to drive though. Couldnt make it all the way up, heavy snow past a point.

    I just tried this morning, there is still about 1.5 to 2 feet of snow across the road, I wasn't able to make it all the way to the quarry.
