Rickenbacker Causeway Grade

Since the Rickenbacker is the only real hill we have down here in Miami, I'm wondering how it compares to hills that folks in other parts of the country have. Granted it's not as long as regular mountain climbs, but as far as the incline, how tough is it compared to what one would consider a "difficult" climb?

Pretty hard to tell with out knowing the % of grade and length of climb**********??
My guess it is not as tough as Sugerloaf (I have been told that it is 14%) or Hospital Hill and some others here in Central FL and no comparison to some climbs in GA, NC, Tenn., VA
