Climb Summary


This is a busy but challenging climb.  The road is quite windy as we climb away from the vineyards and settle into an even 6-7% grade surrounded by steep hillside and oaks which block distant views for the majority of the climb.

 Roadway surface/Traffic:  The roadway is good shape, but this is a busy roadway as it is one of the few connectors from Hwy 101 (west side) to Lake County.  Due to the steep and windy configuration of the road, traffic generally travels fairly slow up the grade, although during the summer there are many vehicles towing boats in route to Clearlake.
