Grades where I live, are up to 25%....so I use a double front 20/32/bash and 11-34 cassette.

25% ouch! yeah maybe anythinig over 32 is useless up front.

I really like the 22/36 upfront, less gear shifting hassles, The 36 coupled with the 11-34 in the rear allows for almost everything. I only need to switch down on the monster walls for climbing.
The SLX Double Hallowtech II crankset feels great! Power all the way through the pedal stroke.
Almost forgot, with the double upfront, No worries ever again about chain suck.... GOOD RIDDANCE!
Ever think about going with a short cage on the back?
