Hill Climb Fail - 700 Tenere

Just another snotty cutline in Alberta, Canada. It's steep and loose then gets steeper with rock ledges. You can ride to the peak relatively easily from the other side. We were hoping to connect the two to make a rideable loop but the North slope is pretty damn steep. I aborted the attempt when it was clear I didn't have the speed to get up and over the steep upper section. I'm undecided about second attempt, the first try wigged me out. I'd like to conquer it but the consequence for failure at the top rock ledges is quite high.
