This is a short and extremely tough climb and clearing it anytime of the year is to be applauded. The climb starts easy on the tarmac before heading into a rock garden with a mix of set and loose terrain, early on there is a pipe that is difficult to negotiate and there are no obviously lines on this super steep climb with an average gradient of 10% and a maximum of 15%. This is possibly the hardest climb in the area to negotiate. Climb status very hard (Black).
Very Hard – Black
Very Hard climbs will always feature a very steep gradient between 10 and 15% or feature technical terrain that requires a high level of skill to negotiate. This type of climb is a real challenge for anyone and a number of elements come into play on this type of climb. Having a bike that suits you with a good range of gears, health and general cycling fitness are all important to successfully complete a very hard – black climb.
