​Heely Dam to Withins Gate

An old packhorse route with super steep sets, only 0.7 miles in length with a (Cat 4) status this climb is super tough. From the road the bottom section is challenging in the dry with hidden rocks and in the winter months the mud plays its part. From the gate the climb ramps up on large cobbled sets and momentum is the key to getting up this climb. Standing up for increased power runs the risk of losing traction and sitting down with see some rider’s front wheels lift. Brag to your mates if you make it to the top without stopping or putting a foot down. Climb status very hard (double black).
