Great video, Randycan....
If you compare the 21:24 mark with the middle photo by the OP (Joe), they just about match up. (His looks like it was taken about 20 minutes earlier on his day.)

I drove up Lippincott Road on Friday 3/25 and the Subaru wagon was already gone. Another 100 yards and he would have been home free. He must have been right in the area of the 20:00 mark on the video I took

Great pictures. I would also have loved to see a few pictures of about 14 Nissan Pathfinders lying mangled and torn at the bottom of the switchback.
I guess I'll never understand the "Jamboree" mindset.

Is that the "SEDAN" that people were posting about blocking Lippincot?

Descended Lippincott Road on Tuesday 3-22-16 am after camping Racetrack. Came across a Subaru wagon about 2/3 the way down in a particularly rough spot. Appearance suggested too fast on street tires ... impaled undercarriage on a large rock ... The FJ is me ...

Probably a tourist in a rental. There's always someone not doing their homework.

From DVNP road reports, noon 3/21:
Lippincott Road - A SEDAN is stuck on this road at this time. We are currently assessing the situation. Most likely impassable until the vehicle is removed. Stay tuned.

Did Lippincott in both directions to celebrate new years day.
Definitely 4wd & clearance required, but no hairy washouts. Be wary of cars coming in the opposite direction as easy opportunities to pass are slim. Attached Images

Lippincott as of 1/10/16:
No issues. 4x4 high clearance needed. No dangerous washouts on the trail itself. Go slow...
