Black Top Road

About the climb

Given you'll be ending your day going up this climb, you'll find it a little tricker than the Two Koalas we'd normally rate it. Ultimately, you're averaging 9% over 1400 metres - it's not a particularly enjoyable affair considering this is a city entry point, but the bonus is that it's basically all downhill once you're done!
