Is the Manitou Incline uphill only? Well, yes and no

Greg Cummings nears the summit of the Manitou Incline Thursday, Jan. 15, 2015. Cummings, who has Type 1 diabetes, made 1,400 ascents in 47 weeks last year before the Incline was closed for repairs. Cumming climbs the 2,000-vertical-feet in less than a mile to raise awareness for his disease and has a website at Change4Diabetes.org.   (The Gazette, Christian Murdock)
