“A high ridgeline trail, on the 3rd tallest mountain in SoCal; see Catalina Island on a clear day.”— Tracy Sulkin
Featured Race - Sep 2, 2019
Most participants are able to run all the way to the Notch and a little past, which is about halfway. Then most runners start walking or run intermittently. The route levels a bit at the start of the Devil's Backbone, but it's short-lived.
From that point forward, it's very difficult to maintain a consistent run; however, there is a long stretch of relative flatness below Mt. Harwood. After that is the start of the final 650 feet of elevation gain (from the saddle just past Mt. Harwood). I think this is where the monster comes in.
