The rumor on MP.com was that all the access to Pequop was shut off, which was the case when we tried to access the area from the pass and from the exit to the West.
Luckily, the old gate at the bottom of the grade is still an option. Some of the chunked up asphalt has been used to fill up the trench in front of the old gate which even has a lever bar installed. It's probably the work of the rancher that doesn't want his other gates thrashed? Anyway, the original access is viable for the time being, and it was passable for a late model subaru legacy. A little more American ingenuity and you might get a Sprinter in there.

It was too bitter for camping, but rooms are kinda cheap in Wells. Twelve Mile hot springs is that far north of town right next to Bishop Creek.
The nearby ruins of Metropolis are worth checking out.

This is what's left of the old school.
Thanks to whoever cleaned up the first pitch of that old, run out 5.10 that I added bolts to a couple weeks ago. It was nice to go back and climb it with clean holds and less pucker...
