Tips

  • Roadie Steve 🚴‍♂️

    One of the top 100 climbs in the UK, Malham Cove climb is approximately 2 miles long with an average gradient of 6%. Much of the climbing is in the first mile where the gradient maxes out at around 24%. Malham is a great place with a few pubs, parking and toilets - although it can get busy in Summer as many people come to the area to walk up to Malham Cove.

    A limestone cliff created by an ancient waterfall, now dry as the river diverted through a cave system

    This climb rewards you with some very good views of the impressive rock wall of Malham Cove.

    Classic Yorkshire climb - short (compared to an Alp), steep, gradient changes all the time.

    Live locally not as steep as some make out deffienetly not 24% except if you cut corner which is dangerous, high lime stone walls .
    Be careful on decent a sharp off camber left can have you shooting across road into a gate if taken to quick.
