The orignal still seems to be there for me, per this link:

http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=2607318&tn=80

Let's see if my current car-camp post shows up?

It did not and I got kicked off-line on this thread.

I sought out the other (missing) thread a week ago to no avail. Good on Fritz.

Another dirt run is Schilling Road on Schilling Ridge north of Merced R. at Bagby, Mariposa Co. In several locations it's possible to view Half Dome with ease.
At least five cattle gates.

And on the way in to Pinoche Peak you hike along this old logging road, level and contouring perfectly. Ain't bulldozers great?

A quiet place if ever there was one. At about the same elevation as Yosemite West. Soon, this area may be a part of YNP, if political deals go down with a consortium of land-owners.

And over on the southern side of the S. Fork Merced River is the dirt extension of Jerseydale Road, leading out to a really poor vantage point, unfortunately.

Directions are pretty hard to miss. Speed limit is ten miles per hour as a courtesy to the cabin owners along the way. So cruise slow and ride low.
