Wintergreen Ascent 2013 Hill Climb

This week’s Super Strava Segment is the full Wintergreen Ascent 2013 Hill Climb on Wintergreen Mountain in central Virginia.

One of only three Hors Catégorie (HC) climbs in Virginia, it is widely regarded as the toughest climb in the state. The 10.8km segment averages a punishing 7.5 percent gradient. The middle portion of the climb is the most sinister, with series of steep switchbacks that will leave big guys like me crying for their mommies. I know I did.

The interactive veloviewer graphic below (almost) does the climb justice.

As always, if you know a segment you would like profiled, email me at oldandonyourleaft (at) or drop me a note via the contact page.
