Question for NE Ohio riders?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Question for NE Ohio riders?

Is anyone familiar with a hill called Derthicks Hill in the Mantua, Oh area. I am curious what kind of elevation change there is or does anyone have any idea of the grade. For me its a tough .6 to .7 mile climb and would love to know the grade to have something to compare it too.
