Tomorrow I'm planning on waking up very early, driving to Greenwater and ride up HWY 410 up to Sunrise.
I've been riding a ton of rolling hills and probably get at 5-8000 feet of elevation every week, but need to get some real mountain climbs in before RAMROD.
If I had all day, I might consider just riding from my place in Auburn (have rode to Carbonado via Enumclaw many times). Trouble is I have family stuff planned for the afternoon - but still want to get the climbing part in.
Is Greenwater the best place to stage from and park a car? Looks like there are amenities there.
Also, for any RAMROD veterans how does this climb compare with the standard RAMROD climbs? I hoping this is worse, and knowing I can climb it will be a confidence boost.
Please share any advice or suggestions.
