    Honister Pass is not the hardest climb in the Lakes at 'just' 1-in-4 (a minor 25% at its steepest), but I'd definitely rate it as one of my favourites. It's 1.4 miles (2.2 km) with an average gradient of 10%, maxing out at 22%. So, for the Lakes, it's well within reason!

    In 2013 the Tour of Britain passed Honister with huge crowds lining the whole climb - three or four deep on the steepest sections and at the top. The weather was pretty horrific too, so it was definitely a spectacle, especially with Nairo Quintana and Dan Martin putting the hammer down.
