Stories, information and comments from Mount Revelstoke climbers
Story by Ed Janicki from , Canada, submitted on 08/08/2012
This is surely one of the better climbs in Canada. It offers more vertical than any other paved road. The gradient varies a little, but avoids extremes. There are plenty of switchbacks for some technical practice and speed control on the way down. Best of all, the traffic is light and slow-moving.



Watch out for potholes in places. They are mostly easy to spot. Be aware that you might encounter a bear or two, particularly early in the morning or in the evening.



A small correction: the gradient exceeds 7% for most of the last kilometre and hits 13% on the last switchback. It also hits 9% in places before the last kilometre. It never goes downhil while on the way up although it flattens to 1% in places to provide some respite.



This climb is highly recommended if travelling through, or staying in the vicinity. In fact it would be worth a special trip, along with some other great rides in the area (e.g. Mica dam).
