The Hardknott (OC-84) and Wrynose Passes

Little Langdale, The Lake District, England

Hilly

Take on pair of iconic Lake District climbs. Starting in Eskdale, first comes the climb up Hardknott, (official UK climb #84, length 2.2Km, height gain 298m), one of the hardest hills in the UK with a maximum slope of 30% and long sections above 20%. The climb has two tough sections, separated by some respite in the middle. Save something for the second section, which is harder. After the tricky decent into Cockley Beck, the climb up to the top of Wrynose starts. Gentle to begin with, but 20% again near the top. The ride finishes with a fast descent into Little Langdale.
