Story by Andrew Poland from Oxenhope, United Kingdom, submitted on 20/08/2012
CBB scores don''t really work for climbs like Park Rash. The climb proper is 2Km long at avg. 11%. Its in four bits: 1- Viscious opening hairpins at a max 25% on a dreadful surface leading to a 15% drag then 2- eases off for 10 metres past farm then 3-100metre total rest before 4- wicked finale maxing at 20%. This is a real classic brute. Many are forced to walk on opening salvo. First Kilometer averages over 15%

The above profile of this climb is a bit misleading as Park Rash doesnt really start in Kettlewell; there is a little climb out of the village but this is followed by a gentle descent to the start of the climb proper. When it does start theres no mucking about - straight into a short section of around 30%, then a very steep hairpin, then a longer section of around 20% before it eases off a little. Theres then another 20% stretch you could really do without before you get to the top and are rewarded with fantastic views and a thrilling descent into Coverdale. Ive done this one many times as its the nearest really tough climb to me, but I never feel totally confident when I set eyes on it! Definitely one of the toughest in Britain.
