International climb database
 
Just found this link - it's a pretty awesome (though not complete) database of paved road climbs throughout the world. pretty good for U.S. climbs, less thorough in other parts of the world -- and there's not a lot of detail on the climbs - but a good starting point if you're visiting somewhere new!

Thats a good collection, but as you note, the structure is in place, but the details need to be completed (especially the most important detail on the elevation gain & distance)

Here is a link to a collection of Arizona climbs with some pictures as well as a some other climbs in different states and countries.

I like the King Of the Mountains database, cuz you can identify climbs in a given region, then google it for more info. would definitely be better with all the specifics though - love that AZ page!

Thanks for the link socks. Bookmarked it. Going to visit longer later tonight with a cup of tea.

Interesting that TN has the highest summit, paved-road climb in the Eastern US. I had always thought it was Mt. Washington.

There's a really good website for climbs in Europe at www.salite.ch
It even includes climb profiles...

Here's a good website for those interested in climbs in New England.

Lot's of interesting data on the climbs themselves and the power needed to get up them.
