Keep in low gear : 17% descent ahead, Mountain Road, Caerphilly
Having just walked up Mountain Road to this point, I can confirm it is a steep climb up from Caerphilly railway and bus stations! The sign shows a 1.7% descent ahead, but 17% is intended - that's a 1 in 6 gradient. A 1.7% gradient would be barely noticeable, and would certainly not need a sign!
