INTRO

"93 South is a very steady climb near Jim Thorpe, PA that can test you over its solid grade.  It is along a wooded route for the most part and carries a bit of traffic at times but not enough to ruin your ascent.  Its grade will make you work and only eases near the obvious summit on top of the ridge.  With its fairly straight routing it is a very fast descent as well." (This quote provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike), 2nd Edition, pg. 94.)

CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Route 93 South

Ride 1.9 miles gaining 915’ at 9% average grade.

There is nothing special about this climb other than it is a Pennsylvania Top 10 Most Difficult Bike Climb.  The scenery is not exceptional and it is on a busy highway. There is a 13% quarter mile stretch that is particularly challenging - hence the Runaway Truck Ramp.
