Stories, information and comments from Wroxall Down climbers
Story by G Corbin from Sandown, United Kingdom, submitted on 17/01/2013
Having only climbed hills on the Isle of Wight, I can only really give this one star - but I think it is the hardest climb on the Isle of Wight. I''ve climbed this around 10-12 times during training rides. It has a nasty kick at the start on Bath Road. It then settles into a fairly constant gradient around 7-10% before averaging around 14% for the last half a mile or so. The last few hairpins feel like they are 20-25% on the inside.
