Big Hill

I was just checking out the route I ran on Saturday during the storm weather and realised how it is so easy to under-estimate gradients. Looking at the graph on the right it shows a hill we ascended when crossing the Darent Valley towards Eynsford, Kent. We were swearing and joking about the gradient and had estimated it as a 10-12% imagine my amazement when I saw it to be 18%, that was one steep, tough hill.
