Status Update
Got my Tacoma to the upper trailhead at 12,500 last night and I have to say the upper part of this road has been deteriorating these past few years. A little worse every year. Currently the rating of "3" for this stretch is out of date. I managed to bang my head on the roof of the truck twice, which does not happen on a "3". I would give it all of a 5 for difficulty. Certainly not comparable to Jaws on the Como Road, but not a walk in the park either.

I was up there 2 years ago and agree that the upper part of that road heading to upper TH was bad and seemed worse from prior times.

Same here

Did it over Memorial day this year in an Xterra with KO2s, and I'd also agree that it should be rated a 5. Made it up, but definitely took a lot more effort, picking lines, getting out of my car, etc than a 3, and even a 4 for that matter.
