Note: The elevation calculations in this table only counts the gains/losses at the endpoints of each segment, and does not include ups/downs within a single segment. For example, the elevation change between segment 18 and 19 is stated as -280 ft in this table. However, looking at a detailed contour map, we can see that this segment goes up and down several times and that the actual elevation change is not a simple -250 ft, but something more like +150ft/-400ft. The actual total elevation gains/losses, are therefore significantly higher than those stated in this table. What's stated in this table are the absolute minimum numbers. Actual numbers (using a topo profiling software, experience, and research on the web) are closer to +8000 ft in elevation gain, and -7500ft in loss. For the reverse direction (Del Valle to Stanford), the numbers are almost reversed: +7500/-8000.
