The more difficult climb in the Deer Park this climb is a real mixed bag with a rock garden to negotiate immediately followed by a brief rest bite and onto an unmade track. This section in the summer months is hard work but can be ridden, the winter months present a different challenge with a muddy final section. The profile only covers 0.4 miles but with an average gradient of 9.4% and a maximum gradient of 10.7% this is an extremely tough climb. Climb status very hard (Black).
