Hilly routes ?

Hilly routes ? was created by Les T
I was chatting with Dennis Holmes as we stopped for a breather at the top of Riber Road on a recent Thursday evening run.
The question - was this the steepest route road route in the area we get to try ?
In a spirit of curiousity and discovery I've done some exploration and the results are in the attached table.
The distances were measured by car and the heights by close examination of the OS map, so they are approximate - I'm sure someone with a clever GPS watch will be able to get much more accurate figures.  The climb %age is for the whole route - obviously there are much steeper individual sections within each route (I separated the top part of Riber Road as an example).
More suggestions . . . .?
