Shackelton Knoll – Hardcastle Crags

A simple climb to look at that hugs a dry stone wall of a field but appearances can be deceptive and this is certainly the case with this climb. Aim to tackle this one in a dry spell as water sits under the green grass surface reducing traction and slowing momentum. The profile of the climb covers 0.7 miles with an average gradient of 6.9% and a maximum of 10.6% giving this climb a hard (red) status.
