Drove up from Wildridge to intercept 734 to Red & White in a lifted 4Runner and we were glad for the high clearance - a necessity on a handful of pitches. Also glad to have two of us so one could hop out and spot. Beautiful views not far from the gate, so next time may be a hike instead. Lots of downfall/blowdown and had to remove a few downed trees and limbs from the road. Two deep spots of mud and snow not far from the 734 intersection. Fun for an experienced off-road driver!
