Millook climb is a very steep climb south-west from the village of Millook. At the base, there is a 30% gradient sign and three corners as you wend your way up to the top. If you avoid the apex of the corner, the gradient is much less than  30%, but it is still greater than 20% for a considerable length of time. When you have made the summit, make sure you look back, there is no more rewarding sign that you have quickly ascended from the sea level.
