FYI. For those that have not checked out the climbing trail yet.
It is an advanced level climbing trail, this is not an easy route for new climbers, you have to have good fitness and be a proficient climber to make this climb worth while. By all means, have at it, but don't expect an easy "access road" like climb. Even good climbers will walk some sections the first time up, there is some punchy stuff that you won't get until you know the trail better.
This is from my personal experience, riding it with a variety of people that are proficient climbers.
Agreed. Technically the climbing route it is a good challenge, but completely doable. For me the bigger challenge is the fitness to pedal from bottom to top. Last time I rode it, my lungs and legs to some extent, forced me to stop and catch my breath, more than once I must say.
For those who have not done the new Fromme climbing trail, think a much longer version of Sticks [HTML_REMOVED] Stones, Salamander, Academy Climb or the new R [HTML_REMOVED] R climb. All very fun and able to be done but definitely a challenge on the fitness side.
It's great to have so many fantastic options !!!
