The Wrynose and Hardknott Passes

Eskdale, The Lake District, UK

Hilly - New

Wrynose pass and Hardknott pass are the hardest hills in the Lake District and possibly in the whole of the UK. This ride starts in Little Langdale, climbs Wrynose Pass (Official UK Climb #85, length 2.5Km, height gain 278m), descends to the remote Cockley Beck before climbing the east face of Hardknott and then descends into Eskdale. Wrynose is hard with long sections over 20%. Hardknott is shorter, but has a wicked 30% ramp at the start and never gets easy.
