A tough half mile climb with fantastic views at the summit. This climb is part of the Flower Scar regeneration project that provides off road access between Todmorden and Bacup. The climb has a rough surface and traction can be an issue on this loose terrain. Not the steepest climb with an average gradient of 5.4%, although the maximum gradient of 11.2% makes the climb hard (Red).
Hard – Red
Hard climbs will feature a constant level of difficulty or feature a technically difficult section. Climbs of this nature are likely to feature terrain with a gradient between 5 and 10%. This type of climb will really challenge new cyclists and require regular cyclists to increase their efforts to successfully complete this type of climb. The majority of the climbs in the Calderdale area are hard – Red.
Distance: 0.8 km
