“Iron Mountain along Route 74 is a short and solid ascent located close to the Vermont border.  The climb begins as the road expands to two lanes uphill and is over a stout and steady grade as you ride to the west.  There can be a few cars along the way but the road is wide so plenty of room for riding.  At mile 2.0 there is a short descent and then climbing resumes over more moderate grade up to the unmarked summit just before the road reduces back to one lane each way.  Due to grade and routing Iron Mountain is a quick descent as well.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 116.)
