Ascent Trip Report

This part of San Francisco received nationwide fame in 1996 when the David Letterman "Late Night" show was broadcast from San Francisco. David rolled things down this hill including super bouncy balls and watermelons (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vj0uvl5kbhw). This is one of the steepest drivable grades in the city. It is a 31.5% grade and it is one-way down only. The sidewalks are so steep, they have steps. Great place to bring visitors when driving around the city. For the complete feel hike up the hill on Filbert Street from Leavenworth to Hyde and then drive down Filbert from Hyde to Leavenworth.
