Crackpot and Oxnop Scar (OC-46)

Crackpot, Yorkshire, England

Hilly

Starting on a dead-end gravel track above the tiny hamlet of Crackpot, swoop down into Swaledale to cross the River Swale at Gunnerside. Climb westwards through Gunnerside before re-crossing the River Swale over Ivelet Bridge. Oxnop Scar is now only 1 Km away, so make the most of the remaining gently rolling terrain. The first few bends of the Oxnop Scar climb are awful! But once you pass 8.5Km, only a few steep pinches remain to pepper the long, rolling grind to the summit. Oxnop Scar is the steep cliff off to your left, visible from approx 11Km. Official Climbs #46. "Send for agent Triple-X".
