Are you talking about riding from Sierra Madre up to the Chantry Flats trailhead? If so the grade averages 6%...

From the corner of Santa Anita & Sierra Madre to the turn-off for the dam (I got tired ), I registered 8.1%.

Yes, I believe my computer showed an average of 6 or 7 from Sierra Madre & Santa Anita to the campground (mkadam did the hardest parts imo), and a max of 11 or 12.
