OK, you have the suid, sgid, and sticky bits set, and it's a directory.
Execute (directory navigate) permission is off.

Linux supports 32 bit uids and gids, so those numbers seem OK.
The blockage will be the sticky bit, if your effective UID is not root.

I'd also check that the filesystem is not mounted "noexec", and please
post the permissions on the parent directory, as its ownership and
permissions are just as relevant as what is shown.
