Back on Nevada 164, I cross Crescent Pass at about 4850 feet elevation, my high point of the day
Date: May 27, 2010, 14h05
Looking behind me down Kelbaker Road, I've risen about 1500 feet over approximately 16 miles
I've done this long gradual climb many times over the years. It's relatively easy in cool weather, but on the first day of a trip, fully loaded down before I'm acclimated to 90-degree heat, it gets a bit slow and sweaty!
