Go into Slaithwaite and turn left at the roundabout and the climb starts just after the Shoulder of Mutton public house directly below the church. The road rises very steeply at first under the railway bridge until it reaches a crossroads where you turn left. Here you get quite a long respite along Longlands Road but as soon as the road name changes the going gets tough and just gets tougher!! You pass the Wilberlee Junior School on your right and then the next section is very tough but there is a real sting for the last two hundred yards before (what you might think is the top) the road levels out as it follows the contour around the hillside. Grab a splendid view to your left before the final small amount of climbing up to the Old Chapel at Scammonden, now residential apartments. You have a choice of two pubs to grab some refreshments just a matter of yards further over the brow of the hill. Enjoy!!
