Trans Temp too high?

I have an 08 CCLB F-350 with a 5" Flo pro and a Mini Maxx with the Easy tune loaded currently. Yesterday I drove up a 15% grade for 3-4 miles of very whindy road at 20-25mph. The air temp was mid to high 80s. Elevation was 3500 up to 5200 feet during the climb.

Question is, my trans got up to 218 and my oil temp was 222 while my coolant was 213. I was unloaded pretty much, maybe 300-400 lbs of gear in the bed. Are those numbers too high for a pull like that? The road is steep, and all three temps dropped back down to normal ranges within 5 minutes.

Just wondering.

I wouldn't worry a out it. A lot of things come into play that effect temp. Mine climbed to 225 on about the same hill one day and all other stays was much lower. I thought my trans was going and it was winter and cold no snow on the road. The next time I hit that hill I was able to go faster and the TC locked and temps were much cooler. Especially since all your temps came back down shortly after I wouldn't worry about it just keep an eye on it

Ok thanks guys, not sure what's extreme and what's not regarding pulling grades and towing.
