This looks like it may be accessible. Eldin plans to attempt to reach this point after work,6pm-ish.

[edit] Expedition

I got a late start, since I didn't get out of the office until about 6:15 (I'd anticipated getting off closer to 5:00). But set out for the hashpoint anyway. I found a spot to park almost a mile from the coordinates, and set out walking through a new subdivision. A few houses looked occupied, but mostly under construction or empty lots. Past the subdivision, I continued out into the desert. I saw some antelope, which were very near the coordinates, but they ran off before I got close. When I reached the hash, it was in an odd area of dead vegetation. Now, most of the grass as far as the eye could see was the yellow color that grass gets this time of year. But in this area it was grey, like it was really dead. And all of the other plants in this area were either dead or sick looking. I don't know what caused it, but it was definitely a bit creepy.
