The second instalment in the North Dean Woods climbs, this climb follows the same bridleway up through the woodland with an added section linking Norland. Once you have rolled over the river bridge the climb ramps up and the surface can be loose in parts. The first section is the most difficult and the climb has a few nasty kicks to challenge the strongest riders. Once you have made it to the hairpin turn left the climb is much easier up to the cross roads. At the cross roads take a right and climb steadily to you reach the road. The profile of this climb covers 1.2 miles has an average gradient of 6.9% and maximum gradient of approximately 14%. Climb status hard (Red) and (Cat 4).
