    Personal climbing records-Front Range

    I just wanted to see what everybody personal records are for climbing some of the trails on the Front Range. These are real times, not "ride" times.

    White Ranch to bench (Belcher Hill climb) 34:10
    Falcon (To hut) 37:20
    Chinmey Gulch 49:00 *(This is the time I'm most proud of, I have never even come close to this again, I'm mostly around 51:00 minutes, but I had a guy on a Ellsworth chasing me up the hill that day)
    Betasso CW 19:40 CCW 20:30

    I have been keeping track on my wife's Garmin Forerunner 305. Please feel free to include any additional trails or climbs.

    Erik

    Was he carrying a steak knife and a fork? That guy creeps me out, but he does make me climb a little faster. I think it's the "flight" half of my fight-or-flight instinct kicking in.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Rumor has it that Dave Weins does Falcon in the low 20's when he visits family here.

    I climbed...

    Outa bed, 7 a.m., to go ride, after a six pack of Stone IPA the night before, definitely a PR for me!

    hmmm, let's see. To do Falcon in 21 minutes would be climbing at about 5100 vertical feet per hour. That's roughly the same as Pantani's record up Alpe d' Huez. Add in the increased rolling resistance from dirt and technical terrain...Dave's certainly a talented rider, maybe he should be doing the Tour?

    I heard JHK did in the 18's. As far as racer-goobs go, most experts pull it off in the mid to high 20's, sportos mid to low 30's. Before I got a power meter I had to use those climbs (Belcher, Falcon, Lookout, Squaw Pass) to try and guage fitness. For a quickie, I'd sometimes do Rooney lot to the top of Box-o-rocks. I think Bergen Peak is the most entertaining hill to go TT as you have to use some skillz too.

    On a good day I can do Falcon ( to the first picnic shelter) in 28 1/2 to 29 1/2 minutes. I'm a slow donkey, not a thoroughbred. In general my race times are 25 to 30% SLOWER than a Pro over the same course. I' ve known a few Expert class guys who can go under 25. Sub 22 for someone like Weins does not suprise me at all.

    I used to keep track of those two and High->Palmer->Section 16->Intemann's back when I first started riding because it helped me monitor my progression and I sucked so bad on the descents that climbing was all I had going for me. Then I figured out that the descent is the best part of the ride and now I climb those trails trying to conserve as much energy as possible so when it comes time to head downhill I have something left of my legs. Plus, you make a descent just as exhausting as an ascent and it's a lot more fun.

    Notice the "Fearsome Foursome" item has no associated time entry.. Who would want to do this?
    "Start the clock at the base of Flagstaff, do super Flagstaff, turn down, go to Sunshine end of pavement, turn around, half way down Sunshine go down Poorman road to 4-mile Canyon. Go down 4-mile Canyon to Boulder Canyon, then up Boulder Canyon to Sugarloaf, go to top mailboxes on Sugarloaf, turn down, go up Magnolia, stop the clock at the top of Magnolia."

    V6, 11c, and 38:40 to the bench on Belcher on a SS. That's with 2 stops so my heart didn't jump out of my chest. 1h 31m lap @ the 24 h of Moab SS. The rest listed are so out of my range that I'll just enjoy the banter. Other dudes, this is not stupid, it's winter, give us a break.
