So how much climbing is there in a single Berryman loop? I track my time and speed average and such but am curious how much climbing there is. 

Thanks to anyone who can answer.

Thank you, thats encouraging. I assumed about 100ft per mile average or 2,500 ft.

I just check my gps track and I had 2408 ft of climbing from my Berryman lap.

Hmm, I went back and looked at the original track that the route was made from and it shows ~2700 ft. 

I'll have a look at it. Something was odd with the route to begin with because of the way the OT is separated there into 2 tracks (Courtois, eastern side of B-man).

It looks as though the discrepancy is in the OTA's gps track- which is the one I used for the 14 mile Berryman section. It shows ~2300' over just the 14 miles.

Does anyone have a recent track starting from Bass Resort?

My hidden interest in this is getting a comparison for an event Im doing near Dalton Georgia in Jan and then again in Feb. The Georgia thing, Snake Gap Time Trail looks like about 5,000 ft in 34 miles. Im thinking im in for a tough day.
