Where are such R.O.U.G.s (Roads of Unusual Grade)? I don't think they exist.
I think lots of such claims are simply highly inaccurate guesstimations. Imo, riding a 5% hill intuitively feels like a lot more. Riding a true 20% incline feels like a wall and will drop your speed to a few mph even with a solid effort.
