Does anyone know what the gradient of Heart Attack hill is?

This street in Wales has a gradient of %37.45 which is an angle from the horizontal of almost 21 degrees.

I live here and don't know where you are referring to. There are a number of extremely steep streets and roads.

Nuestra Señora de los Remedios is the street that starts at the bridge to La Ropa at Plaza Kioto and passes La Ceiba Condos, intersects with Calle Adelita and then runs to the top of the hill at La Madera where it ends at the steps that go down to the beach between Bungalows Allec and Bungalows Sotelo. The section between Calle Adelita and the top pf the hill is one of the streets visitors sometimes refer to as "heart attack hill" for its steepness. Another one is by the Hotel Irma, and another is the road by the Casa Que Canta.

You don’t know where Puerto Mio is either....you gotta get out more! ( :

We ended up at Puerto Mio in 2001 when we were looking for the then new campground on Playa La Ropa. Coming up from Oaxaca with some sketchy directions to the park. Happily found it after a fun turn around at Puerto Mio with our travel trailer.
Our now long time landlords and dear friends got a big laugh out of the tale.

And, my husband who walks and rides his bicycle on most of the “heart attack hills” would add a few of the climbs in La Noria and towards the microwave towers!

So, guess it's time to leave, but since we live here, there is no place to go. This is already paradise. Sigh...

Guess we aren't worthy. Time to be quiet.

Ahh, brings back memories of pushing strollers or carrying kids up that hill to Brisas del Mar.

Please don't be quiet, I do so appreciate your info. Some people just have no manners, especially online where they forget that there are real people on the other side of their screens.

I believe there are a couple of miscommunications here.

Time for a song! Volume, please. :jam:

The communication was good. More like a misunderstanding. I found nothing wrong with ZihuaBella's post. It was even said with a smile.

if you have an Apple Watch you can check the elevation gain from the start of the hill and also measure the distance. Then use the old rise over run formula.
