Climb starts easy on good road in the forrest until the first roadsign appears 15 % . From here on the road kicks up but still good road surface. About halfway the climb the road becomes very narrow, the view becomes stunning and you also cross 2 short tunnels. This all is in the middle of 8 very sharp and steep hairpin corners, making this climb a beautiful one. It is also very hard, the last 8 km the gradiënt is 9,2% average. At some places i had to stand and push on the bike in highest gear just to keep moving. Last 500 meter are easy again. Last 4 km the road surface is very bad, together with hoe small the road is, and the very deep drops besides the road, making the decent dangerous!
