Looking to shave some time off, and avoid 70 on the drive to the upper frying pan (above Ruedi res).

Looking to take either. I have a 62 with 2.5 ome heavy new bfg 33 tires etc. Doable?

I don't know about shaving time off by going over Hagerman Pass but the pass itself is not a very hard pass. Done it in a Surburban and a F250, all stock besides other Landcruisers

I guess I should say more scenic drive than faster!

Two thumbs up for Hagerman pass. I drove it a couple of weeks ago in a stock Pathfinder - no trouble at all. Seems like an easy road and some great views!

A white Toyota minivan was going up as I descended back to Leadville. Don't know how that turned out for them...
