That's got to be whack data on mapmyride. 5574 feet of ascent has to be way way WAY off. Just looking at the roads, there are plenty that are the same, but just in a different direction, so would guess there would have to be a comparable profile to recent routes.
Check that thing out. Down
Ridgeview (great climb!).
You know what's going to be soul sucking on this route? County Road T up to Barneveld at mile 83-85. It's not hard or steep, but it just keeps going. That road's fine when it's earlier in the route and people are around, but scatter riders along the route and it is going to feel quite lonely. At least it was the few times I did the HHH. Knowing there is a stop after the top is good news, though.
