What is the longest climb in the Cincinnati/N. Kentucky region? Directions from Downtown Cincy?

There are a lot of climbs in the 1.5 - 2 mile range in the area. There are a lot of shorter, but VERY steep climbs - think Mt. Adams or Straight street in Clifton.

Individual climbs that come to mind: Tanner's road off of Rte.8 in Northern KY. Amsterdam off the other end of Rte.8 There are numerous 1.5mile + hills coming off the Licking River Valley area near the Visalia bridge - I just can't remember their names. The hill coming out of Rabbit Hash (yes, there is a town called Rabbit Hash) is over 2 miles - but the town is 35 miles from anywhere to begin with. I'm real familiar within N. KY, but not with Cincinnati.

If you want directions, email me at plisterman@insightbb.com I'll be able to get back to you this evening from home. I'm at my office now, so I really don't want to give out that email address.
who cares as long as the descents are goodCherry1
