I've done Steel pass and South Park in my 4x4 in the past. I'd agree with TT, South Park is alot more challeging than Steele Pass.
Steele Pass wasn't technically hard, but it was tiring on the GSA. My issue was I couldn't keep the rear tire from digging into the gravel when the road got steep. An new tire.... or big cajones and speed might of gotten me past that spot.
You shouldn't have to worry about diggin in with the lighter bike.
