​Height Wood - Eastwood

A real mix of terrain from tarmac, fire road, a stream crossing and a super technical short challenge near the top. The climb has a 6% average gradient and becomes more difficult on the steeper sections with a 12.2% maximum gradient. The technical section of this climb is tough and luck and power are both needed. On the plus side it’s only a short walk for the many that will not clear this section. Climb status very hard (BLACK) because of the technical elements not the difficulty of the climb.
