Two things, Jim-Ds idea of oh thats easy is kinda scary. He did get my 18ft big ol Tundra over Schofield Pass and the Devils Punch bowl. AND I hope I get to do Pearl Pass with him this year as well as Blanca Peak.
Black Bear is a little scary but a piece of cake with a good spotter. If you can do it in a Crew-Max a Fj is a shoe in.
There is a very good chance it won't open until mid July which is usually when they open it. Normally, it is the last trail to open. Make alternate plans.doing this on probably a terrible weekend (fourth of july) and im sure itll be a traffic jam. but a top heavy fj will do fine im sure? (rtt, fuel)
