2 questions. I'm looking for recent conditions from this spring. What are my chances of driving all the way on the dirt road in my Hyundai sedan? Are the bolts still on the ear pitch?

i hear the roads are pretty great and rarely change condition down that way.

Whoa whoa. I bet you don't get your Hyundai all the way back. Once you turn off into Taylor Canyon your following a wash that does indeed change every time it rains (which we've been getting a lot of). I'd say you got a 32.7% chance.

When I did the Dunn Route in August, I looked down and there was bolts on the ear. Good luck.

I'm assuming Max is being a smart ass. Good form.

bring a blue big bro or #9 valley giant if you want to fully protect the ear instead of just going for it, a bolt or two is missing

You want a high clearance rig. It's a long way out there it would suck to get close and either have to walk in or turn around. As mentioned the "road" follows a wash. Changes all the time.
Climbed it in May of 2012 and all the bolts were there. Friends did it in October 2012 and the bolts were on the ear pitch then too.

Climbing at the Belvedere crag near Nago with a great view of the northern end of Lake Garda and the town of Torbole sul Garda below. June 2013.

A couple friends of mine climbed Primrose Dihedrals last weekend. Bolts were in-situ and looking good. They drove their Subaru Outback in there and said it was a piece of cake with the high clearance. They had to drive slow in a couple of spots but made it sound like the road was in really good shape. Don't know how a Hyundai sedan would do though...
