I have a century the day before, otherwise I'd be there.

I rode Balcomb at about mile 115 on the Mulholland Double in 2008, just brutally steep and 106 deg.F at the summit. Will never forget that.

Good luck on your climb!

Rick, they're going down the steep part. I've never gone that way, it scares me. Here are some Rock boys last year, check the view behind them.
