Well done because it is hard especially with a steep gradient.
But, all that effort without actually claiming the hill? I would find no satisfaction in saying, ‘ at least I beat the other guy’s time’. Champagne, for that! There are so many hills near London it takes less than a minute to think of at least ten worthy of the challenge!
