    Steeper than the rest, the hill climb is the toughest one I have done. The XC course climbs up the same hill (on a dirt road) then you race your laps, laps are fun but like nothing else we race on. High alpine environment makes it interesting race starts at just under 10000 ft, lots of roots and rocks. Fun course. There is no beginner course just laps around the same deal, expect to get passed by the big boys at least once. Maybe most like AF but AF is comparably easy IMO.

    It has been known to snow on this race now and then, but I think it used to be in a different month.

    All that said it is my favorite race of the year, plan on having a few beers in Arroyo Seco (thats where I live) after the hill climb. We always ride over to Gold Hill and go down Long Canyon.

    Good luck.
