So far the ride is pretty good. Then we came to a steeper section of road."Do you think this is it, the wall?" "We rode up it didn't we? - it's not the wall." We would be walking if it was the wall. The road levels and comes to a nice viewpoint. I put the bench to good use.

|Walking the wall or walking the nasty climb before the wall. We never could decide which.|
|Am I having fun yet? Oddly, it looks like I'm going down hill. Trust me, I'm not!|
The view is spectacular (it damn well better be!!). We have sunshine for 5 minutes - a tiny amount of warmth while we sit and feast on trail mix and shoot a few pics. The sun hides behind the clouds again and we began to gear up for the cold descent to come.

Not many pics on the way down. It was too cold to stop, and too much fun rolling along. We explore a few spur roads and trails, but basically we're just heading back to the car.
We never really figured out which section was the wall. The last climb was the worst, but the two before it were nasty too. So is the whole thing the wall, or just the top portion. Whichever it is, if you go just be prepared...around the corner there is another climb and it will be more painful.
