Aaron, you seem to be ill informed of the recent history of the canyon. Up until the mid-1980's the graded road up the canyon to Panamint City was accessible by a sedan. Then a flash flood removed 1000's of tons of sand gravel. At that point PC was essentially abandoned and the remaining washed-out canyon was left to the harcore jeepers, as they were the only people able to make it up the canyon.
They canyon seems to be able to survive catastrophic flash floodind, but not a jeep?
Plus, if Surprise is shut down. Pleasant is next.
