Climb Summary

Climb Summary

This is a wonderful climb near Mt. Lassen in Northern California. In an
alpine setting from the start, we travel a fairly short distance (4.4 miles) at a fairly tough gradient (7% average) to the top of the climb with views of Mt. Lassen along the way.  We feel and are in a remote area (although 126 Strava riders had done at least one climb on our route as of July, 2016) during the entire climb.  The road often fluctuates in gradient - 15% then 5% then back to 15% - the 7% average grade is a bit misleading as there are many points along the route where we have to really push the pedals.

The roadway is in good condition and there is minimal traffic along the way. Remember, it can be brutally hot in these parts during the summer.
