Just want to save people some potential time, this is not passable by vehicle.

Do you want to see vehicle shuttle access closed on this road? Keep driving up and down it too fast for visibility of others. One of you has already pushed people off the road by your poor choice in behavior.

This road will always have lots of people on it now, respect each other or watch the road get closed because of you!

Punchy climb section. Makes you ponder whether or not the shuttle route was the better climbing route.

What is the “shuttle route”. I’ve been wondering how to do this without 11 miles of climbing. Thanks.
