It’s a really tough hill. The gradient doesn’t get ridiculously steep, the max is about 17%. But, it stays close to this 16% gradient for quite a long time at the start of the climb. After 1500 meters, the gradient eases off and there is a long drag to the finish. It is quite exposed near the top, so wind direction can make a difference.
It was used in the Tour de Yorkshire 2017. In the women’s race, Anna Van der Breggen and Lizzie Deignan used it as a springboard for the race-winning move.
