INTRO

I did this climb a few years ago after watching a number of climbers talk about it. It's steep, it's remote, it's a lot of up and down, and it's hot. This pass is a collection of ramps between 10 and 25%. One of the ramps must have been over 30% (I can't be sure because the GPS is pretty wonky out there, but I was walking while watching trucks struggling to maintain momentum).

I think this would be a great addition to you collection of the world's hardest (paved) climbs. When I see things like Stelvio on here at a mere 8% avg (and I know it has some good kickers), I wonder why something like DI: Mae Wang isn't here to give some perspective. I'm a heavy rider and by no means winning any KOMs, but imho just *finishing* this climb is all the achievement anyone needs. 



PJAMM Note:  The descent on this route dramatically reduces its FIETS score.  Removing the descent and calculating just ascent raises the average grade from 3.6% to 7.8% for just the climb portion.  Steepest quarter mile is 22% and there is a full mile at 15%.
