“The Achilles' Heel of climbing in the Leadville 100 Run/Bike race series.”
— Jason Lampenrider
Likely snow coverage into May.
The Powerline (aptly named as it largely follows a power line) climb/descent is a mixture of singletack, doubletrack, loose, smooth and hard-packed, eroded.. you name it. The track mapped here is in the climbing direction, but it can be ridden in either way. The descent is technical in spots to avoid the erosion. The climb can be grueling.
