With that said you should go South to North. The climb out of German Bar to the South is as steep as Galloway but very rocky. Galloway Rd is pretty smooth, just seems to go on forever

I lost my vent on my IMS tank one trip, noticed it when we stopped for gas in Downieville. Started up Galloway., took me a few splashes in the face to realize what was going on, rode most of that hill with one hand on the throttle and the other over the gas cap.

PM if you want companion when you decide to try it. I'm in Grass Valley and have a pretty flexible/open schedule
