“Little” Cottonwood Canyon doesn’t mean smaller or easier than Big Cottonwood Canyon. It means shorter and steeper. Unless you’re using a triple chainring, there are few places to “spin” so climbing Little Cottonwood is all about putting power to the pedals. It’s a climb that is well respected in the local cycling community, and those outside the spoked circle will just chuckle dumbfoundedly when you mention where you rode.
