Leslie Street is an urban legend. A street that is so steep that even if you tried this one you will likely fail! It is the Dandenong Ranges steepest road over 200 metres in length averaging 24% in gradient. Peaking at an incredibly steep 32%.
Even though you are very unlikely to see a car on this road, sadly this is a one way street and the traffic goes the wrong way to try an attempt at an ascent of this climb. PLEASE DO NOT try this climb.
I took a walk up this street & it made a climb like Terry’s Avenue which it joins onto seem easy. I love my extreme climbing, and its a shame that this is a one way street as it would be one hecka challenge to get up. Given how hard this climb is. Do you reckon that you would you have been able to make it up this one?
