Coldwell clough is also in a mess from the rain at the mo, so isn't doable at all under current conditions
has it ever been? Demoralising that one, don't think I've been tempted to give it a proper go (only been up 2 or 3 times). Steep straight so far, so meh, liberally covered in baby's head rocks, horrible.
There's climbs that you get into, absolutely throw everything you've got at, turn yourself inside, scorch your lungs, shred your legs, wrench your arms and ultimately fail. Falling to the floor in a gibbering shaking hyperventilating wreck, broken, once the multicoloured spots have gone form your vision your legs will still be screwed for the rest of the ride but you'll happily give it another go next time you ride that trail. Then there's stuff like coldwell where first time your rear wheel kicks 2' sideways you think "**** it" and start walking.
but each to their own, maybe some people feel like that about coldwell.
