    That's the easy part! Check out my record breaking Fargo street climb where I became the first and so far only person to successfully climb the massive 33% grade monster! After my climb you can see me riding back DOWN this wall!

    Going down was a lot more impressive than going up.

    You don't get the trophy patch and congratulations for going downhill. Unless you know how to ride a unicycle, most just have no clue that riding down hills even as steep as Fargo is dead easy. But powering up a monster like that takes everything you've got, and then some.

    With admissions like this, I suggest this thread be moved to the Doping forum.

    I did have a GU gel if that counts! (Without caffeine!)

    Found a local steepy near my house that is almost as steep (32%) as fargo, but a little more than 1/2 the length (274 feet, 88 feet elevation gain) And because it's a paved pathway less than 3ft wide, you can't traverse it going up! This is a GREAT training hill for sure. I had videotaped my climb with a tripod but it couldn't capture the whole climb. As I was about to leave, a local came by and offered to videotape me climbing it. So here is my second climb less than 5 minutes after my first:
