Lightly spanked by El Toyonal/Lomas Cantadas

Finally hauled myself up probably my steepest local climb today - aka Death Climb #3 for those following at home, a nice climb to throw into an average 30mile loop around the hills today. El Toyonal didn't seem too bad to me, but when you hit Lomas Cantadas, there's just nowhere to hide -- apparently just shy of a mile of 15%, I'll confess to having to catch my breath/get my HR back to a reasonable range up by the Llama pen/stables, but a great climb. I'll be doing that again soon.

That means I've checked off Claremont and South Park Drive, I need to get the other couple under my belt soon. Man, Marin in Berkeley just looks bad though...
