In preparation for the 1st Climb California race, I did one last hard vertical effort – The steep access road up to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. At the end of the road you can catch the tram to the summit of Mt. San Jacinto, which at 10,834′ is one of the largest mountain escarpments in the country. This road is also a great way to prepare for the upcoming Mt. Washington Road Race in June, as it has nearly the same slope.
