    Part of the question must be missing to have grade you need the change in elevation 5059 feet but you also need to know the horizontal distance and grade would then express the elevation/distance as a percent.

    so you go up 5059 feet (14459-9400) and 15,835 horizontal: rise/run: 5059/15835 and that = .319482 or about 32%....
