The last time I had anything to do with Mount Climie, it was watching the helmet cam video that Ed showed me of himself nearly running over an old lady walking her dog up it! Like all DHers he was in full control and she had nothing to be worried about.
Team "Go vegan's" Mister Cleetus decided that it would be a cool idea to ride up Mt Climie (860 metres) four times... I think he got this twisted idea from reading Sifter's blog about him and Simon's equally crazy adventures involving altitude.
Being gullible and easily led, I too thought it seemed like a really nice way to spend the crappy rainy friday, which I had foolishly swapped for a handful of beans, and probably the best sunny friday we have had in Wellington since I returned from my holiday in Nelson. Anyway, it was a good test for the Singular Gryphon which is Mister Cleetus's new Brevet machine. See some pix of the Mythical Gryphon grinding up and down the hill.
