CLIMB SUMMARY

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

This is a fairly short climb in the mountains of northern New Mexico.  There is an historic marker at the beginning of the climb, with ample parking.

As we start the climb we are immediately greeted with a sign saying shoulder drop off, along with another sign graphically depicting no shoulder.  So there isn't any shoulder along this climb.  We encountered a moderate amount of traffic but the curves aren't blind and the pavement is ok so we felt safe.

We climb through a pine forest but the trees aren't very close to the road so there isn't a lot of shade.  The altitude does keep the temperature reasonable.  There aren't any views along the climb, although the scenery of the forest is nice.  At the top of the climb there is another historic marker, again with ample parking.

The other side of the pass descends for about 15 miles into Taos, dropping 2,000 ft in the process, at a very uniform grade around 2.4% , so it would be a long gentle climb if you are interested in adding miles to this climb or starting from Taos.
