INTRO

"4 East is a long and somewhat shallow climb south of Los Alamos that does reach high altitude towards its end. From its start at the bottom of a descent within a canyon, continue west and soon find increased grade through a giant S curve in impressive surroundings. At the top of the S curve the grade gets a bit more shallow as you ride on top of a plateau through scrub and small trees. Very quickly the entrance to Bandelier National Monument appears on the left but keep straight on Route 4 to continue west toward the big mountains. This section is along a straight road and fairly shallow grade. Near the junction with Route 501...the grade eases and then quickly steepens beyond the junction..." (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike), 2nd Edition, pg. 200.)
