Kaloko in Kona
Starting out on the Queen K up Hina Lani this is 4800 feet of climbing in about 12 miles, brutal with zero breaks. Do this on a standard and get a taste of a Alpine climb.
Trust me here, carry up a jacket as its crazy cold up top.

South Wales: RISCA/CWMCARN: We have 6 hills i know of that are over 25%, 2 over 30%. The problem being theyre quite short 3-10mins work. Wattsville is 1600m long at an average of 24%, that is extremely tough. Your forarms hurt from holding on so tight, lower back is dying. 1 leaf, 1 wet patch 1 slip ur off and ur not getting back on again. We also have 2 in Cwmbran that are 20% plus for 1km.

Ive done the bwlch and llangynidr (and the tumble 12 times in a day, the tumble (llanfoist, blaenavon) is harder than both easily). All of these climbs can be done fairly easily if you go slow. Our rule for if a hill is steep is how hard is it going as slow as you can. at 25%+ u cant really go fast or slow, its just trying not to stop.

Name of your favourite climbs:

Mt. Baldy - Southern California
Because it is in my backyard I enjoy the climb on Mt. Baldy Road to the Mt. Baldy Ski Area. From what i have read the length at 8.8 miles and average grade of 7.6% with sections of 15% and even steeper switchbacks compare to Alpe d'huez at 8.8 miles with a 7.9% average. Usually can't beat that as a nice leg burning wake up call in the morning!

Mt. Evans
Beauty beyond belief up to 14,130'. From Idaho Springs to Mt. Evans summit you have the first 7 miles of gradual climbing and then for the next 20 miles it is up from there. Net vertical gain is 6575'.

Gap of Mamore, Donegal, Ireland
Must be the steepest climb in Ireland. Only 2km in length but average gradient is almost 20%. At times it reaches 30%. I've done the Tourmalet, Ventoux et al but was never as shattered as after Mamore. A must for all hill conquerors

Name of your favourite climbs:

GRADE: The road climbed to Fall River Pass on steep grades sometimes reaching 16%. Some early automobiles had to climb in reverse due to their weak engines and gravity-fed fuel system. Surface materials washed off quickly.
I would have to say magnolia road out of boulder. short but sweet. also fall river road The Fall River Road was the first road to cross the Rocky Mountains in northern Colorado. Starting by Larimer and Grant counties in 1913 before the establishment of Rocky Mountain National Park, the early construction was carried out by state prison inmates. The convicts made little progress and contractors completed the road in 1920. The unpaved mountain road climbed from Horseshoe Park up the steep Fall River Valley over a series of tight switchbacks to reach Fall River Pass at 11,796'; from there, the road continued down the west side of the mountains to Grand Lake. Despite the popularity of the route, the road proved difficult to traverse and maintain. Automobiles had trouble mastering the steep grade and tight curves and avalanches often buried the road forty feet deep. Following the completion of Trail Ridge Road in 1932 the eastern Half of Fall River Road became a one-way scenic drive from Endovalley up to Fall River Pass; the western half was abandoned or overbuilt by the Trail Ridge Road
