Did this climb again and I have to say it is really good. Sustained climbing and just what you need to stay on in order to get up it. Might have to give it 3 and a half stars.

Did this again as the second climb of the day so I might not have been warmed up. Damn this thing is sustained and hard and really good. I gave it another star I was so impressed. A must do for the real rough rider. Think I have to give it an 11+ rating as well.
