Climb Summary


Climb Summary

Ties Arts, Bussum, Netherlands

 

From Ties’ 2016 US Climb Trip:

This was our first climb of the day. We knew the reputation of steepness and toughness.


The climb with 10.9% average gradient requires a ‘can do mentality”.  Hard work with sections of 13-20% challenging you to find your rhythm. There is only one real hairpin in the route, so it is steep going straight through the woods going up and up and up.

The entire climbs is going through the woods, though a short section is open and shows how unique and magnificent the Catskill mountains are.

The reputation of Devils Kitchen is fair and definitely a must ride if you going to the Catskills mountains”
