Castle to City Distance

House of Cards Log: Castle-City Distances and height of Kolvir discussion. quoting my summary:

Ok, so if we used 5000 feet, which is a nice large mountain for a coast. Two thirds up would be 3300 feet. Mmm, nice view. So the "carriage road" (which is what I've always supposed to be the supply road up to the castle) would need to climb about 33,000 feet long, or about Six 'n' a quarter miles long, wrapping back and forth in quarter mile lengths? for a switchback of twenty-five zags. I think that could work.
