Pine Flat gearing suggestions?

I've got another request for gearing. I'll be doing Pine Flat this weekend for the first time. It appears the climb at around mile 51 has a steep section near the top. Would you recommend I run a 25 or 27?

Is this climb similar to anything in the Bay area?

Any general comments/suggestions that might be helpful for a first timer in this race?

Thanks,
