As a normal Claremont Looper, this one kicked my butt at first. Straight incline to the top. Once you get there, it's breathtaking. In my opinion, a better view then its neighbor. Going down feels amazing! Park in the open area where you aren't covered by larger vehicles or where you can be easily seen from by passerby's. I went last month and about 7 cars had all their windows broken and belongings stolen. They were parked off on the east side of the road behind a large SUV before the turn.
