I bought some topographical maps today and found a section of road that climbs 10meters in 25meters length. Does that mean 40%? as part of a 600meter climb it most likely means stopping and walking to be honest...

Methinks so, 10/25=40%. Go check it out! nmSpunout

I'd like to know if maybe it has hand holds on the sides.
Does anyone from St. Louis know?Spoke Wrench

There is a section of Old Eatherton Road between Olive Street Road and Wild Horse Creek Road that is pretty steep for probably 3/8 of a mile. Does anybody know what the grade percentage of that road is? The folklore among the school bus drivers is that a bus full of kids got bogged down on that road and the driver had to make the kids get out so he could drive the bus up the hill empty.

My favorite is Ossenfort Rd. :)) Send me an email and I can send you a profile of Old Eatherton Rd. to WHCR.
