CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Monte Cristo West

Ride 22 miles gaining 3,764’ at 3.2% average grade.

Climb summary by PJAMM uber ambassador, Bruce Hamilton:

This climb begins in the town of Huntsville and proceeds east up into the Uinta Mountain Range. It’s a long steady climb that’s never steep but climbs up to 9000 feet (our devices showed 8988 at the high point). Like most of these climbs into the Uinta range it starts out at river grade and then climbs to the top of a pass. There is no sign/marker at the top – you just reach a flat area atop the plateau. The first 8 miles or so are just barely uphill - after 8 miles you’ve ascended only about 1000 feet. Beautiful farmland and valley scenery early in the climb. Over the next 15 miles the grade increases and it’s a steady uphill for the remainder. The foliage is different than the Wasatch climbs and this climb in particular would be spectacular in autumn. At the top you finally reach some evergreen trees but the entire climb is heavy in aspen/birch trees. Wide open views most of the way up and almost no traffic. Definitely one you’ll want to do if you’re chasing other climbs in Utah. Nice bonus of a screaming fun descent where you never need to use your brakes.

This climb starts very close to the Snow Basin climb and one could easily do both the same day.
