How much hill climg training did you do before tackling Diablo?

I just did a 19 mile loop with about 2000' of climbing and I am beat. I was on the granny gear at the steepest, longest part and was down to 5 mph. I thought I was ready for Diablo but after today, I think I'll do the 19 mile loop a few more times. Then, I'll climb Cummings Skyway from Hwy 80 a few times. When I can do that out of my granny gear, I think I'll be ready for Devil's Mountain.

How much training did you do before climbing it?

Just go out there and try it. If you end up to the point where you can pedal no more... stop and take in the view for 5 minutes before jumping back on and trying again. It's all part of the fun
