Some important background/context: I rode this in September, 2022 on a sunny day in the mid 80's F (or low 30's C). Did not look at GPS map on my computer or Garmin before attempting (which was a mistake).
To the climb: You start at fairly easy gradients in the 4-7% range and then BAM, all the sudden you're at 11%. Road "flattens" out again to around 6% and then BAM, 16%. Repeat, then 18% around a corkscrew section (great view if you have to stop, like I did).
This climb is no joke, especially on a hot, sunny day, especially when you have no idea what you're up against and don't pace yourself. Put it in the granny gear and spin up the 5-10% sections so you have enough in the tank to power up the 15% ramps.
According to Ride With GPS, this is 1.9 miles with a max grade of 18.6%. In my experience, you'll see >15% on your bike computer 3 separate times, and at that grade, another % or three of gradient makes a noticeable difference imo.
