The Steepest Climb In The World?!

Published on November 7th 2021


The UK is no stranger to steep climbs and it now has a new claimant to the title of the steepest road in the world! Bamford Clough, a newly paved 500m long wall near the village of Bamford in Derbyshire, is a real brute, with sections of over 36%. We’ve sent Ollie to check it out, where he and former national hill climb champions Jess and Dan Evans will see if it's even possible to make it to the top!
