Stories, information and comments from Falkert See climbers
Story by Rob Keunen from Beek, The Netherlands, submitted on 17/10/2012
I did this climb on a sunny cold day in October when there was snow, that together of the very very quiet road (only 2 cars and no bicycles passed me), made this climb very relaxing for the mind that is.
It''s a hard climb from the start, starting with an average of 15 %(up to 20 %). It does give a few moments where the road flattens out, one time a small section of downhill which is a relief, getting the pressure of the legs. The last section is above the tree level,where the cold wind had free space, which made the last 300 metres surely the hardest in my life.
The road stops where the ski stations begins, so it''s a one way climb, up, and down. Downhill is easy, only 4 u-turns, 1 section is possible to reach 100 km/h easy.
