Ok - this is technically a sidewalk. You'll have to walk your bike up stairs to get to it. And there's no flat ground to actually get on your bike and start the climb, so we definitely recommend doing this with a buddy. But if you're brave enough... this is, in our opinion, absolutely the steepest climb in all of San Francisco. In fact, so steep we broke a Zipp hub....

We love San Francisco. The combination of legendary steepness, good food, and tons of great sightseeing makes this an awesome city to cycle in. Just outside the city are some of the most popular cycling climbs in America, like Mt. TamMt. DiabloHawk Hill, and Mt. Umunhum, making the Bay area one of the best cycling destinations in the country.

CLIMB SUMMARY

This climb is laughably steep. You can tell it used to be a staircase, and was only flattened out so construction equipment could be brought down (we don’t know how it was) to the apartment behind the white boards. No sane human being should attempt this on their bike. But fortunately for us, PJAMM is not made up of sane human beings.

This climb is really, really steep…

So steep that I had to take off my cleats so I wouldn't slip while helping hold John up to get him started!

 Round 2!

We highly recommend doing this climb with a buddy…

“I am NOT doing that again” - John says, shortly before we go back down to climb it again to get more photos

Broken Zipp hub 😢

But worth it for the footage!

You'll have to walk up a staircase to get to this climb - but don’t miss out on the Lower Baker Street climb leading up to it - a brutal 31% average grade.



The hardest part about this climb is getting started - there’s no flat ground to get clipped in. You’ll either have to lose the cleats, have a buddy hold you up (like us), or do something miraculous to get started up this monster.
