Griffin's uphill section is a good climb, but not easy. The early part of the climb will get your blood flowing but the remainder is nice flowing uphill climb that you can keep your speed going. Of course, with all North Shore rides, some may find the this somewhat technical if they are not from here, but this is considered relatively easy climb with no technical features. Climb Griffin instead of Mountain Highway road, it will keep you honest and warm you up for the Mountain Highway dirt road climb.
