The first king, Gaspar, is neither the longest climb nor the steepest, but he is no pushover either. Starting next to I-15 in Hatch Park, his first ½ mile is a mild 2% or 3% warm-up. His next ¾ of mile get really interesting as he kicks up to double digit grades that max out at 14%. Gaspar then gives you a 3% grade breather before subjecting you to more double digit grades to the summit.
For some of you, Gaspar will be the only king that you face, but you will still feel a sense of accomplishment that you beat this awesome brute!
