Welcome to Nevada!
Your vehicle, driven slowly and with the heater fully cranked, maintained its uphill composure pretty well.
Now that you’ve gotten out of the depths of Death Valley, it appears to be holding up just fine. In fact, the air itself is slightly less hot. It’s only 113F out here, yay!

At least, what’s left of it…
