Great find for hill climb training

Paved walk path in San Pedro. 33.6% grade is slightly steeper than Fargo. Because it's only 4 feet wide it must be climbed straight up and can't be zig zagged. Grade calculated by dividing elevation gain (71 ft) by length (211 ft).

in climbing a mountain, it's been quoted "climbing a mountain is optional, coming down is mandatory"... it's also known it's more difficult coming down than scaling.... I'll equate both to your feat! That's a strong show of your pistons! Just incredible!
By the way...I ventrilloquized this post. . great clip, uni! Wow!
