Both routes on this tough ride start with a climb and a descent into Coldwell Clough, where those on the full route medium split off to climb up to the top of the classic Jacobs Ladder, before a great descent into Upper Booth. There is a road climb up to the top of Mam Tor, which leads riders to Rushup Edge, around the Roych and back into Coldwell Clough to rejoin the Short route which climbs up the side of Kinder reservoir before heading out to Lantern Pike and the descent back home.
