Almost certainly the steepest section of road in Britain, Rosedale Chimney Bank is often included in the Tour of Britain as it is a true 1 in 3 climb at one point. Go south from the village of Rosedale Abbey. The climb is immediately steep - a sign tells you youre about to tackle a 1 in 3 hill. You encounter a cattle grid which doesnt help matters, after which the road hits 25% on the first corner of a switchback, followed by the steepest part of the climb (33%) - a very steep second corner and unforgiving section after it. The climb then relents to about 20% before easing off to the top (view of mines on your right from a car park area) and on to the vast expanse of Spaunton Moor.
The Rosedale Chimney Bank is situated in North Yorkshire.
Starting from Rosedale Abbey,
the Rosedale Chimney Bank ascent is 1.47 km long. Over this distance, you climb 175 heightmeters.
