Anyone been to Cal Domes this year? Is the road good to go w/ a 2WD?

Thanks

I was there 2 weeks ago and the gate was locked at ellis road but the road was clear of snow and no obstructions. There was work at the area that the road collapsed a while back but it was passable. There were a couple of sections where debris had washed across the road but those areas were also passable

Thanks.

Edit:
Did you hike in?

Appears Panther and Salt Springs roads are closed.

Spoke to USFS Amador on the phone - roads closed/washed out in places. Guessing you'd need a dirt bike?

My daughter tried to get there last Sunday. No luck, the roads were closed.

Seems like a really long bike ride out. Has anyone tried that?

I take the 5th on how we got in but it is definitely drivable cause we drove in on Ellis Road. Did Silk Road and War of the World's. Not another climber in sight.
