CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Reese Canyon

Ride 3.1 miles gaining 863’ at 5.1% average grade.

Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Dan Razum, San Jose, California.

This is an isolated climb with little traffic.  The road doesn't go between any large towns so there is only light rural traffic.  The climb starts just inside New Mexico, about a quarter mile or so from the Colorado border.  

The climb is in a stairstep fashion. There is a steep section at the beginning, then a short downhill followed by another steep section in the middle.  Then there is a second downhill stretch before the final climb to the top.  The pavement is in good condition and even though there isn't much of a shoulder it doesn't matter because the traffic is minimal.  The road is exposed, with no shade but the elevation is likely to keep it cool.

Overall the climb isn't too difficult because of the two downhill sections.  But it can be a  good workout if you happen to be in the area, maybe traveling to the Navajo Reservoir, about  15 miles to the south.
