29er Gearing

So I'm thinking about going from 24x38 to a 22x36 on the front rings. To make the climbs a little less draining. Has anyone gone to a 22x36? Success? Likes/dislikes?
Thanks!

Hello from South Bay Area, California!

Hi All! I'm an avid cyclist. I favor mountain biking, but enjoy the miles and a good climb or two on my road bike. Looking forward to being an active member of this community.
