Climb summary by PJAMM’s Brad Butterfield.

This climb is the most popular in Adelaide for a reason. In fact, I saw dozens of cyclists riding up and down during my time riding it - some of whom looked to be pro. Like Old Norton Summit Road, on Norton Summit Road you are riding through very old country, passing vineyards and ancient homesteads…okay, not ancient…but very old. The last kilometers of the climb are very easy by any cyclist's standards at 2% average grade for the final two kilometers.
