This is a fabulous climb. The grades are reasonable, but the climbs long. I started at the Trimble Crossings Plaza at 6,600 feet. In 17 miles climbed about 2400 feet to the Purgatory ski resort. The distant views were spectacular. But now, for the next 7.5 miles I had to climb 1800 feet. Here the road is reduced to 2 lanes. Quite often you are riding along a road edge that drops off 100s of feet. There are no views or spectacular scenery, but the pavement that I was concentrating on was quite good. As I thought I was getting close to the top, I reached a sign that read: Coal Bank Pass - 4 miles. But eventually, I was at the top. My lowest gear was a 36/28, which I stayed in for the last 5 miles. With good weather this is a nice climb that a cyclist in good condition can do. Make sure that your brakes are in good condition for a fast descent with lots of switch backs.
