I understand the word hill, and I understand the word climbing, but not sure I understand what information you want. Are you interested in using your TW to climb in events like the Widow Maker in Utah (I think). Or are you interested in climbing just 'regular' steep trails you often encounter. Do you want information/conversation dealing with gearing, traction or technique. Personally, I stay away from scary steep stuff. If I need to climb it to get from point A to point B, I will give the task much thought. If it is a matter of just seeing how steep a grade I can ascend, that quest I have left behind me about 15 years ago. Gerry



This certainly is not scary steep, but for my style of riding, it requires lots of lowend torque and some concentration going slow and trying to stay upright.

Nice looking hill Gerry, I do like to climb a hill once in a while. Going down can be worse then up sometimes. This a lot steeper than it looks here, we found some 4x4 trails and were taking it back to the main road. I really begin t wounder how they get up or down these trails.
