|Cross #4 and the finish|
|I ran up to the ridge and took a few pictures. Maybe my favorite shot yet of El Dorado|

|Profile. The first lap up was warm-up and pictures... the second lap was at threshold HR 165-175.|
I ran the second lap in 14:07 on very fatigued legs which was a 3 minute PR for me I think. Here's how the climb compares to Sanitas.
Elevation 5520 to 6863 feet. ~1300ft total in 1.4 miles. 17.5% average grade.
Elevation 7540 to 8410 feet. ~900ft total in .75 miles. 22.7% average grade.
Just working the numbers a bit.
