I can get You there except for the 6% max part.
I'v done this very route a few years ago.
From Moab go south on 191 to UT 46 turn left(east) to the state line (there grades on both side of the state lines) where the route turns into CO state route 90 to Nucla CO , then take 145 to Placervile, Then 62 to east to Ridgeway , and from there go North on 550 to Montrose, then US RT 50 to Canon City where you can fine CO 115 to Colorado Springs.
Monach Pass, (also the Continental divide) is on RT 50 as well.
Do you have the http://www.mountaindirectory.com/
