North Pass is open

We came out of the springs today and went to look at the washout. Just before the washout there was a well traveled route to the right leading down into the wash. You take this and drive up the wash 50 or so feet and then climb out back onto the road. Our autos are a Cherokee and a Wrangler, both with 4" lifts, 33" tires with an agressive tread and lockers in the rear. Sure made the trip back to Bishop a lot easier and faster than going out the south pass.
The north pass is probably not passable by long wheel base vehicles with long front or rear overhangs. Joels Taco and the soccer moms SUVs with street tires would have a very difficult if not impossible time getting into and out of the wash.
