Its VERY close to being within one frame's capability, although pushing the shadows that hard would make it grainy and recovering highlights strongly might clip a color. So I take one frame that's the "right" exposure, and then one bright frame and one dark frame. In lightroom, I make the "right" frame look as good as I can even if it means jacking the shadows or highlight recovery, and then I adjust the exposure on the bright and dark frames to match the look of the correct frame as closely as possible (IE the bright frame will clip out the sky, but I will lower the exposure so that the rocks match the right frame, and will adjust the shadows and exposure on the dark frame to match the normal frame as much as possible). Then I go into PS and create new layers, and brush in the bright and dark frames over the main exposure selectively.
