broski, you're going to want the model/rental with the best compact gearing. you've got tons of experience riding looong, 20+ mile climbs
but above 8,000 feet, it's going to be miles of slow scenic altitude suck. can always shift up if you're feeling it. you can only shift down so far.
hardest climb in the world-right? what's another $60-$120 to ensure you're set up as best as you can be to realize a dream?

have fun! that's gonna be a long-*ss descent...

are you bringing your own saddle and pedals?
