The hill itself is a 0.6-mile length with a pair of switchbacks and an overall grade of 13%, though that jumps to 20% in select spots. It is the crucible in which riders burn before being allowed the privilege of taking the Wasatch Crest. Most riders start the hill in good faith, expecting a tough, but manageable, slog to the top. Unfortunately, most riders underestimate the difficulty, and end up walking their bikes most of the way. Those who do manage to power through have often repeated the action that gives the trail its name. More than a few stomachs have been emptied over the intense uphill climb.
