i read that sign as the summit being at 512m

--------------

I may have been wrong ...

10% = 5.74 DEGREES
WITH A VERTICAL OF 512m
THE LENGTH OF THE HYPOTENUSE WOULD BE JUST OVER 5.1K

So that sign says 6km in length, would be about right allowing for variances in slope

Nice bit of Trigonometry there 

Dug around a bit and found this on a route description:

ROUTE DETAILS DISTANCE 6 km

START HEIGHT 80 m

END HEIGHT 512 m

HIGHEST POINT 512 m

ASCENT 432 m

DISTANCE UPHILL 6 km

AVERAGE ASCENT PERCENTAGE 7.2 %

MAXIMUM ASCENT PERCENTAGE 9.0 %  

 

So I need to adjust my figures.  Stupid sign.
