Ride 3.7 miles gaining 1,618’ at 7.9% average grade (9% climb only).
Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Dan Razum, San Jose, CA.
The climb starts at the intersection of 7 Devils Road and Highway 105, next to a gas station. This is a nice climb but unfortunately you probably don't want to add it to part of a longer ride. Highway 105 is quite a busy road with fast moving traffic and little to no shoulder so the best way to reach the base of this climb is by driving, not by biking on Highway 105. There are areas to park nearby, including at the gas station, so you might ride a few hundred yards on Highway 105, but we wouldn't recommend much more than that.
We start out climbing right away at around 10% gradient, through a few sharp hairpin turns until we reach the town of 7 Devils. The road is wide enough, the pavement is nice and smooth and the traffic is light even though there are many houses along the climb.
After we reach 7 Devils the gradient isn't so steep and we have a fairly flat section for a mile or so. After that the gradient kicks up again for the rest of the climb. We bear right, off the main road, at Skyview and we bear right again at Tangle Lane, for the final series of S curves. We bear right one last time on Divine View Ct, where the road ends next to a private driveway. There isn't any view at the top, but there are some views at various points on the way up.
2 right turns to be aware of on the climb.
