Tips

  • Katherine Moore

    Named among 99 other corking climbs in Simon Warren's 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs book, the Devil's Staircase is a stunning stretch of road in the Abergwesyn valley, mid Wales.

    With a few short and sharp hairpins that bend up to 25%, it's certainly not an easy climb! In total the climb measures only 0.8 miles (1.3 km) but what it lacks in length it certainly makes up for in intensity!
