Cobbled Climb #2 - Trooper Lane
Halifax sits in the on the river Hebble, a tributary of the Calder, in the shoulder of a steep escarpment, to the east. Trooper hill is a quiet road, that with few concessions to the gradient, climbs straight up the escarpment. The views back across the town are great, and taking them in is a good excuse to catch your breath.
Then it rises in a straight line, with a gradually increasing gradient, before turning to the right and emerge at the summit, at 237m.

Strava SegmentA decent segment needs to be set up. There is one, misnamed and inaccurately recorded (probably with a phone). The one below will do for now - it's a bit shorter than the whole climb, put the profile seems more realistic.
