I'm guessing they must have been doing repairs to that section of the road because we did it in August 2012 and there were no dirt sections. Your first pic of the open road tells it all. Curvy, narrow, no guardrails ... and a VERY long way to the bottom.
Going up isn't bad, it's the fools who try to go down in 2/3 rd gear that burn out their brakes and get themselves in trouble.
