Having the rear locker helped. Doing it when the rocks were wet did not.

Between all the passes, I think I posted above images of all the toughest spots. If you can get around those, you will be good.

These are some great photos Justin. Have been through all of these passes several times now in the 80's (and with the M416 trailer too) and would love to do these in the 40. Keep me in mind for next summer if you choose to do these again.

The buddy I went with would really like to make this a yearly trip so it is entirely possible we head out again next year.
