    Very challenging climb but well worth the effort

    The second highest public road mountain pass in Wales this is definitely one to tick off the cycling bucket list. It is narrow and winding so it is recommended to pick a quiet time to cycle up since the stunning views often attract motorists to drive the climb.

    The climb is almost 3km long with some quad burning gradients right to the last meter. It may not be for beginners or after a large meal but it is worth a bit of awkward hobbling in cleats to see what waits at the top.

    The hardest climb in Wales? It is undeniably steep - especially once you reach the barriers where it really bites to the summit where great views towards Snowdonia justify the effort.

    An awesome climb!! Five stars!! Luckily I descended it on my last encounter. Beware when descending as there is a very sharp left hand bend at the bottom!!
