I'm looking forward to this, even the climb to the radio mast, always good to get it over with early.

Here's the route profile:

It's 20 miles in total with 3489ft of climbing. The second proper climb up through Pin Dale and Dirtlow Rake is actually bigger but the the first one up onto Shatton Moor is steeper and drags a bit.
