Is this saddle passable?

So lets say I wanted to drop into Idlehour a different way...
Lets say that...(According to google Earth) am around at Muir Peak, about 3/4 mile East of inspiration point. One saddle has goes down through "Lone Tree Trail". The very next ridge East, looks like it is used from what I can see on google earth. But as it drops down at the very bottom, it looks like a drop, but I can't tell.
Does anyone know if this is doable. If it is anything like the one next to it with "rock scramble" and the lone tree trail, I am only going to go up....I don't go down those things. If it is as difficult then I will reverse and start the other way through Henninger flats.

It's an old firebreak. I've been eyeballing it for quite some time. Went down it a little bit. Kind of overgrown. There are old telephone poles up top. I'll probably try going up it from Idlehour one of these days.

Its part Telephone trail until elev 3400 or so then part Station Fire break until elev 2800 or so. I went down it a few years back.  It does not reach Eaton.

I just saw the last two replies, Thanks. Since I usually start late in the day, I didn't want to end up at a dead end at sunset.
