Plenty of elevation gain up to the pass. Easy first mile until you cross Chatter Creek for the first time and then the elevation gain kicks in. The last mile up to the ridge/pass is rocky but offers excellent views of Grindstone Mountain. If you decide to drop down the other side of the ridge then the Lake Edna area makes for a nice destination.
