Going vertical again...

In the absence of rock and ice climbing, and following so many flat miles during Festive 500, I've taken to trying to gain more elevation on the bike again. Winter weather is making this fun, but I have well over 2000m total so far this week, with a couple more rides to go. Maybe I can hit 3000m!

The first route includes a horrendous little climb called Mochikoshi Pass (East) - 10% average grade for a little over a kilometre, with a maximum of about 58% (on a particularly nasty little hairpin bend, I think). Climbing that definitely fends off the winter cold!

Mochikoshi Pass (East) elevation profile - ugly!
