Direction of travel is from South Benfleet towards Hadleigh/Southend on Sea.

The climb begins with a steady incline where the pitch of the slope is fairly low. At about the halfway point of the climb the road opens up and the rider can see the majority of the climb ahead which gives you an idea of the effort needed to reach the summit. After a brief respite at approximately 1% gradient for 150 metres, the remainder of the climb increases to approximately 7% and seems to go on forever. As the road bends to the left riders get their first glimpse of the summit - which is still approximately 400 metres away!

I recommend this climb. It’s a long one so bring plenty of stamina with you. This climb is best done on a clear day to appreciate the views of the Thames estuary on your right hand side.
