    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.
