What a challenging and fun climb. The weather was sunny and extremely windy which made the exposed summit particularly difficult, and made for a exciting descent. The climb is long with extremely steep sections happening at frequent intervals. However, frequent changes in gradient gives much needed recovery time.

It's a climb you will remember the First leg is a steady climb so get in gear for the rest , as it is relentless .
You think your there at the top when you see the sharp corner but you have a little more at about 12 percent so save your legs for final push .
, watch out for the sheep on your descent

A challenging climb best done on a sunny day when you can appreciate the stunning views. The road is very quiet as it just serves the radar station at the top. There are long stretches of 15% to 20% gradients so bring your climbing gears with you. Take care over the cattle grid near the top as the bars are quite widely spaced! Don’t forget a wind jacket for the descent - this is the Pennines after all.
