    Widowmaker Climb in GJ...Any Success?

    I was there a four years ago and didn't make it up, back when i was a little weakling, but neither could the two strong as hell leaders we had with us do it. Has anyone done or seen anyone climb this *****?

    You'd prolly get a better response in the Western CO forum.

    Many locals can make it up everytime.

    I've done it lots on a 40+ pound bike, although not with any kinda consistency. The big azz fork is kinda an impedement on something so steep and loose. It's hard to keep the front end down and maintain traction.

    This time of year is best; the soil will cooperate. Once it dries out, or some motos tear it up forget about it.
