    More nerdery. I really wanted to know how high "where eagles dare" was - since it looked like a good 150' from where I stood.

    If @Mow-ree 's GPS can be trusted, looks like I overestimated a bit. It's more like 107'

    What's your guess on Skyline Drive? That one is rendering with the GPS overlay now.

    I’ll take a wild guess at 140-142 feet.

    That’s a pretty amazing “guess”!

    I know this is an old thread....But..

    I just got back from Moab. I got to the base of that hill and dodged it...my nerves just weren't up to it after taking a ugly spill on a hill climb the day earlier on the slick rock. I had to see how many bikes were climbing this. Awesome to see folks doing it! There wasn't much traffic at all last week out there so all I saw were Jeeps doing it.
