FULL CLIMB STATS
This is a fairly isolated bike climb that begins along the Columbia River at a fruit packing plant 170 miles east of Seattle in north central Washington. We are quickly out of the commercial area and into the rolling hillside with not visual obstructions (or shade 😟) - nothing but pastureland, hills and an occasional stand of pine trees along the way. Although not the most beautiful climb around (well there aren't many options in the neighborhood), its a great work out and bike ride.
The grade on this climb is 7.5% with next to no descent. 30% of the climb (1.8 miles) is at 0-5% grade, 41% (2.4 miles) is at 5-10%, 26% (1.6 miles) is at 10-15%, and 1.8% (0.1 mile) at 15-20% grade. The steepest quarter-mile of the climb is 13.5% and steepest continuous mile 11.3%.

I did this climb on 7th April 2021 (along with Badger Mountain- see entry). I parked at the Beebe PUD park, located on the west side of US 97, immediately south of the Beebe Bridge, and directly across from the beginning of McNeil Canyon road. There's ample parking there and bathrooms (park hours 08:30-20:00 as of the time of this writing). The Lone Pine store is located 6 miles south of the parking, and has great sandwiches plus some produce, and good coffee (Blue Star from Twisp). Not open on Sunday as of April 2021, but pre-Covid, it was open 7 days a week, so good to call first. The climb pretty unrelenting (you can see the profile). The main issue is wind. I had a decent tailwind to start (which really doesn't help much given the steepness). But, by the time I reached the summit, it had become very strong, gusty and unpredictable. I had to pedal down many of the 12-16% grades, and thought I might get blown over a couple times.
