About the climb

A little-known bump to only the most seasoned of local riders, Ingalalla is a short, but brutal ascent. You hit Waterfall Creek - and the picturesque Ingallala Falls - after a downhill run along Hay Flat Road. You'll need all your momentum to cheat your way through the start of the climb. It averages 11.33% and will max out at 17.6% which you'll need to sustain for around 200m.

We grade this as a 'Three Koala' climb, but given you'll probably discover this one midway through a stint, it's closer to a five!
