Climb Summary

“The east side of Route 23 is a shallow grade hill that has some traffic at times.  It is perhaps the easiest way to climb to the west in the area.  Carrying two lanes uphill, it is over a shallow to moderate grade all the way up and ends at an unmarked but obvious top as the road descends beyond.  Climbing from Route 145 creates a climb of 9.5 miles at 3.0% average grade.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 124.)
