There is one hill going in from Swansea that is kinda steep and a wee bit loose. It's not as steep as the Cerro Gordo side, however there is less traction.
I would try it (especially on your bike),but I do lots of stupid stuff. One question. What's it like turning that thing around mid hill?

Here's the hill we are talking about.
No need to turn around. Just put it in reverse and back it up! Two wheel drive and reverse It would easily come in from the Swansea side even on that one hill. Put it in two wheel drive and it would crawl over that. Pretty sure I couldn't come in from Cerro Gordo. When I did it on the XR I had it pinned going up the one steep hill. I'd love to take the Ural up there and camp for a couple of nights. I remember a good spot right after the tram up top.
