Steepest Street

During my urban night hike a few days ago, we hit Canton Ave, a street with a 37 percent grade, it is debated as one of the steepest streets in the world, and it is paved with cobblestone. It is one of the Pittsburgh "Dirty Dozen," a bicycle race of the 12 steepest hills in Pittsburgh. There are neat Utube videos a cyclists attempting and just falling over. The photo on the left was in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette in Jan 2005.
Here is a recent Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article about Kilimanjaro climb:
