@jtaylor996 I know the part of you that wants matching Enve decals will hate this suggestion, but can you put a triple on your bike? Even with a 20% pitch, you would still maybe be able to spin up steep inclines if you have a 30t inner ring and a 12-30 on the back without going over your HR limit.

If you have mechanical shifting rather than Di2, I think you'd need a new left shifter and FD in addition to the obvious need for a new crank.

Probably no time to do that before your ride, though. I'd just go for it and make sure you don't push yourself any harder than the MD is telling you to.
