What are you driving ??    The route  is fine for any 4X4 with some good clearance  in high range 4X4.  I did it in one hour forty five minutes on Friday and sunday.

Just exited South pass today, Friday, 11/10. It was the worst I think I've ever seen it. Very rocky and bumpy.

Hi Silver Bob! I know you don't remember me but you and your wife were broke down on the corner of Saline Valley rd and Bat when we found Warm Springs for the first time. My friend Shannon and I got out to ask directions. 

Thank you for the update. Trying to find the best way into Beverage but it all just looks grueling.

There WAS a road down San Lucas Canyon, but it's been gone for over 60 years.  You can hike the route and still find traces of the old road cut into the canyon walls, but nature reclaimed the road down the wash long ago.

Rained today as I exited S. Pass around 1:30pm. The rain chased me all the way to Olancha.

Came in South yesterday, Oct 1.  Based on twelve years of coming here I would classify it as normal to good between the highway and the pass.  Normal to a bit rough from the pass to the junction with Bad Road.  Bat Road itself, normal.   No road issues worth mentioning.  Any reasonably high clearance vehicle with good tires should be fine.

There were a grand total of six campers at Lower last night.  Four vehicles.
