Notes from John: As you can see (on the https://rever.co track map) we approached Taylor Pass from the south after doing Reno Divide and Spring Creek Passes.

Notes from Karst: We arrived at Reno Divide from Crested Butte via FR-740, a fun, narrow road, full of "speed bumps" and few hairpins.
It can easily be done on a large dual sport bike with moderate skills from this direction.
When I got to the top I recognized the place from 4 or 5 years ago when I came in from the north on FR-759 on my Dakar.
I remember it was very difficult (for me) with many very rocky sections.
