I am wondering if any rider here in Seattle area has tried this road:) - https://www.king5.com/article/entertainment/television/programs/evening/east-roy-street-seattles-steepest-block/281-435006247

Btw, there is a nice trail next to the Seattle Japanese Garden near by - https://goo.gl/maps/ioZ8rKo88Jk

Current generation wheels, especially the 14 inch ones, can go up any hill, the limiting factor being tire traction. Overheating wheels are caused by the distance and time travelled, and not steepness.
