Springmountain Rd Idaho

I'm putting together a Idaho route for this September and looking for some intel on Springmountain Rd. , A pass that runs between RT28 over to Pashimeroi Rd.
Trying to determine the condition of this road and if its passable on a big bike. Would appreciate any info anyone might have.

I don't see anything like that on my Benchmark map. If I go further south there is Spring Mtn Canyon that goes from 28 over Big Windy and down Squaw Creek and comes out to Little Lost River Rd. Is that the route you are referring to?

Went over that road in 05...

West to east direction on 2 KLR's and a 950 KTM loaded down for
a week trip. Only one spot that got a little western going up the west
side, steep and covered with loose shale, we all made it
with no issues but that was 10 years ago, don't know what it looks like
now.

We went over that back n 2009 on this ride: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=495538

The first page has this picture of the west slope. We were going up the west side eastbound. Ryan smoked the clutch on his 950 trying to get restarted in the loose shale rock. If you are going the reverse direction you would be headed down this section. Coming up the eastern slope is a good road. You would just have to deal with this loose shale rock section going down hill. Of course this picture doesn't show how steep it is and there are sections that you can't move over far enough to get out of the rocks like this smooth line that is in this picture. Who knows if it's in better shape now or worse shape.
This slope is here: 44.360359, -113.287479
