Something else to keep in mind is that W-E starting June could put you in some very hot and humid areas during the peak of the misery. Then again, maybe that weather suits you.

You will have to tell me where these 30 mile long climbs in the Rockies are.Cortez to Lizard Head Pass is about 60 miles of uphill to one degree or another, but certainly nothing like an average of 6%, much less 8%. In fact, unless my math is wrong, a 30 mile climb averaging 8% would giving you over 12,600' of climbing, with an average of 6% giving you about 9,540 of climbing. Isn't the highest road in CO a bit over 13,000'?
And I hear you about those short, steep hills. I rode across PA in September. A couple of days featured seemingly endless 1/4 to 1/2 miles ups and downs, and they were steep. Thanks to some bumpy roads, I often didn't bother to shift on the short descents. Just left it in the granny gear and waited for the bike to slow down while going up the next hill. I actually started to welcome longer, gentler climbs.
