Years ago, we named this climb "Russel's Revenge". Scott was the first one in the gang to make the climb without stopping, so we gave him the honors. The hill continues to get steeper at the top. Right when you are almost ready to give up, there is a choice between whoop-de-dos and a slippery off-camber side. There is more traction on the side, but you must sprint through it so you don't fall into the whoops and spin out.
Todd displayed the common side effects of Russel's Revenge. Severe oxygen depletion and nausea.
The view from the top ain't bad!
I rode again after work and got to see the trail in a different light.
