Cantelow is maybe one quarter the length of Ink Grade. It's more uneven, with a spot or two steeper than Ink Grade, especially steeper over the last quarter mile, but overall much shorter.

Two different beasts. Ink Grade is nicely shaded, so on a hot day I'd rather ride it. If you ride hills at all, Cantelow is not too bad.

I posted the elevation for Cantelow on the other thread. (yes Norman, figured out how to use photobucket)
