Slack Hill

Situated on the A632 between Chesterfield and Matlock, this is a tough climb that has a difficult 15% start and then drags up on to the top of the hill overlooking Matlock. There are no curves in the road, just an imposing straight road up the hill. In this area, good hills are in abundant supply, there is little flat, so this is likely to be one of many tests on that day.
