it is not technically challenging....it is mentally challenging. sharp turns and straight drops.....you can make if you don't freak out. just remember the seat covers will get wedged so bring some soft ones.......LOL

Saw a video on YouTube from a guy driving over it in a stock rental Jeep. If you know how to drive your Jeep and properly use things like 4-Lo you shouldn't have any problem from what I have seen. I have never been over it myself. Lots of videos on YouTube. It looks like there is one section that is off camber on an extremely narrow bit next to a drop off for pucker factor and another portion where people are saying the few rock steps are about 12" high. After that some switch backs where you have to even back up a 2 door Jeep to get around. I don't think you would have any problem as long as your Wrangler is well maintained.

Where do you live at if your afraid of heights or worried about the cliffs try doing mt baldy off of old stage road. I think it's road co67 or maybe it's co69
it has a decent cliff that will help you ease into the driving next to a cliff.

we are planning a run on the week of the Independence Day. You are more than free to join us. Black bear is most certainly on the agenda again this year.
