Well I was crusing around today and I came up to the 105st hill(anyone in Edmonton knows how steep of a grade that hill is) and was stopped at the light at the bottom. Some ricer in an Acura pulls up next to me after the classic late breaking/changing lanes that people in E-town love to do. Light goes green, he takes off like with a bunch of wheel spin. I take off normally and let him beat me to the hill. Fart can was screaming so you know he was trying for some speed up that grade. Just about half way I figured what the hell and put my foot down. Little puff of coal(SCT coming tomorrow!) and the wonderful sound of a straight piped 6.0 drowns out ricer. Passed him about 3/4 of the way up, does the ricer fly by and turns off at the next light. Wish that he would have stayed for the next light, because I wanted to play some more.
If I had to guess I would say it is around a 10 or 12% grade. Close to 3/4 of a km long? I am sure some Edmonton folks know of the road I am talking about and have more knowledge than I.
