Default Anyone Done Black Bear Pass Co. In H2?

I've been going to Colorado every summer for 42 years. I've done just about every pass multiple times and over the years - in just about every 4Wheel drive made it seems. I am a very expierenced 4 Wheeler and have learned over the years that the difficulty ratings given to the Colorado trails are VERY OVEREXAGGERATED and usually a piece of cake.

I do find myself in an interesting situation for the trip this summer (last week of July). Seems in all the years of 4Wheelin in Co.....that for whatever reason......Black Bear Pass has not happened.

IT'S GOING TO: Thursday July 30th. AND IN MY H2.

Any Telluride descent feedback from anyone that has run Black Bear in a H2 would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

It's a dog track.

It is completely beautiful.... with amazing scenery everywhere.

You will have to make a multi-point turn on every switchback..... but you will make it just fine.

Great trail..... ran it the week before last.

The switch-backs are tight...... especially at the top.

The price for failure on any of them is high. The trail is narrow with an unstable shoulder and it is a long way down over the edge.

The H2 turns like a battleship and required multi-point turns. There are also places on the trail where it gets very narrow....like tires on the very edge narrow.
