Safjällsbacken - Safjället


This climb in the Safjället natural park in Mölndal is not a technical one but the grade is interesting for hill repeats. After 10 or more your legs will feel the pain! The climb starts on asphalt with an easy incline and it averages a 16.1% grade. It's not that challenging and the conditions of this climb usually are good. It's almost entirely of gravel and the first part asphalt. One climb is approx. 61m so you need to make many reps in order to gain a respectable amount of elevation gain. But hey, our runner community in the area loves challenges and there is no easy alternative if we want to be ready for those tough challenges in high altitude around the world. 😊
