Climb Summary


Climb Summary

IMG_2033 - Copy.JPG

This climb ranks in the Top 10 on the Tri-County Climb List with Fiets Index of 4.23.  The first half of the climb presents the greatest challenge with an average grade (9.2%) nearly double that of the second half ( 4.9%). During the summer, the temperatures in this area can approach and exceed 100 degrees, so beware of the weather.  This is a private, peaceful, challenging climb surrounded by oaks and forest along most of this relatively secluded climb.

Supplies:  
Cloverdale is just a few miles from the start of this climb and all supplies necessary for the ride are available there.

Roadway surface/Traffic:  The roadway is in poor condition which is not a problem ascending, but be cautious on the descent as there are potholes, fast approaching steep sharp turns, gravel, shade and, during our most recent ride, wild boar (see video). The road is very narrow with no bike lane (essentially a wide one lane road).  Traffic over the entire climb is negligible. ​
