Anybody doing Dana these days?

Has anyone been to Mt. Dana recently?

Looking for info on the Dana Couloir (hopefully for the ascent) and the standard route (possibly for the descent, which one TR recommended).

Thanks!

Road to Horseshoe Meadows

What's the road like to Horseshoe Meadows (the one in the high southern Sierras)? Is it paved or dirt? And if dirt is it rough or a "high quality" dirt road? Thanks!
