Are you planning on heading there any time soon? I was thinking of hitting a couple of peaks there on Saturday but the weather seems iffy now. Might still go though if I can't find something "better" to do.

Thanks a lot, Mick. I must get up there too. How far down from the Pass is it to Blowdown Lake? It looks like a great place to camp.

The lake is below the pass. There's a major switchback to the left where the road emerges into meadows, maybe a km or so before the pass. A spur straight ahead almost immediately changes to a (wet) trail which leads pretty well straight to the lake. From the outlet of the lake where there's a good campsite (no facilties), you can then crash up on the left to get back onto the road to the pass.

This is the last section of the road that is 4x4 only a couple of weeks ago. And yes that is a truck you see in front of us.

Oh yes a bit of a paint scratcher. Been in worse though at Vicuna/Guanaco. About 6k of that in my TJ just busting through and over all the slide alder. Unfortunately now I have a vehicle that I care about. How long does that portion last?

The overgrown section is about 2 km in length and varies in how much it is overgrown.
