Review: Road was damp, packed, and reasonably smooth (4/30/06). Lung burner on the way up, road burner on the way down. I made it about 3 miles up before lightening and hail kept me from reaching the top, but both helped me reach @35 mph on the way down. The ride down is worth the ride up. Or, find a way to shuttle to the top. I will return and summit!
