South through Death Valley, the alluvial fans are invisible in the dark, but you climb and descend several thousand feet through Badwater (El -282’, the lowest point in North America and the start line of our Badwater Ultramarathon) to the base of the exit passes (Mountain Section Six). The first climb starts at mile 297 and climbs about 1000 feet in five miles to Jubilee (El 1285’). A one-mile descent leads to the next climb, about 2300 feet in 9.5 miles to Salsberry (El 3315’). Each climb has sustained sections of 5-5% grade and used to have a poor road surface; in the 2009-2011 era, most of the Badwater Road was resurfaced by the National Park Service. However, the conditions are harsh out here and flash floods scour the roads every year, so anything is possible in terms of road surface.
