    Were you able to keep the bike upright coming down the hill? I have told a few people that I think the hill is makeable coming down on a big loaded bike, but I don't know since I have never done it. And likely never will.

    I would imagine the Pioneer pass on the south side of Pinal peak is the pass in question. Certainly not 13,000 ,but if you're on a big bike it can be as challenging as many of the higher trails in Colorado. Seems like it was 6000 ', IIRC. Its just south of Globe, south to north is most difficult direction of travel.

    When do you plan on riding this, Nov? How late in the year is the route rideable?

    I was considering riding it in early November, around Veterans Day Holiday, as I would be working south towards the warmer weather and hopefully before any snow
