Very very steep and unremitting but fabtastic views at the top. Best done in summer as the tarmac tends to be greasy in winter.

Hardest climb in the UK. When you open the gate you have a 5m flat section of tarmac then straight up at 20% without dropping below (sometimes up to 30%) for 800m. No bends, no deviation, no views (unlike Asterton Bank), just a straight line of utter brain melting through your eyes torment. The final section is however wonderful but the pain before will test you to the limit if using 39x25
