Photos and climb report by PJAMM Ambassador Dan Razum, Campbell, CA.

Start

This climb is just off of highway 198, not far from Coalinga. The climb starts a few miles after

the intersection with highway 198, so you can park at the intersection and use the first couple of

miles as a warm up.  There is also a hill before the climb proper starts, you ascent a couple hundred

feet and then dip down to reach the start of the climb.

The lower slopes have scattered trees and pastures used for cattle grazing, as can be seen from the

two cattle guards that we pass through on the way up.  There are some interesting rock formations

and there are also nice unobstructed views of the valley and mountains nearby.

Closer to the top there are more trees, which can offer patches of shade in the summertime.  

The top of the climb is at the county line of Fresno/Monterey counties.  The road continues down the other side, but

as a dirt road, no pavement.  It appears that Fresno county paved their side of the road but Monterey

county decided to just leave their side as a dirt road.

The road is fairly narrow, without a shoulder, but it is in good condition and traffic is very light.

There are a few farms along the road and not much else so you won't encounter many vehicles on this climb.
