Eldred Street: The steepest street in Los Angeles at a recorded 33% grade.

We've calculated the gradient based on internet topographical data, as well as from our Garmin and Wahoo .gpx files taken from our personal attempts up this climb. Our calculations show this road is a 29.11% average gradient. 

Google's advanced topographical database shows the maximum gradient reached by this road to be 65.0%.

Google's advanced topographical database shows the maximum gradient reached by this road to be 65.0%. 

Roadway:
Awful - one of the worst of the "Ultra-Steeps" that we've come across. The gradient makes this an extremely challenging climb, but the loose rocks and cracks in the road make this climb nearly impossible.  

Traffic: 
None

Parking:
You can park on the street anywhere at the bottom of the road
