Easily the hardest paved climb in Poland. Last 4 km with 20% or more, really demanding.The other side to Spindleruv Mlyn is also nice, but way easier

Terrific climb...

I was on holiday in the area and almost by chance I found this climb on a map (for example, Google maps does NOT have this road).

From the village of Podgorzyn the road start to climb in a very nice landscape in the forest, with several switchbacks. Nothing too hard, but still a consistent 7-9% gradient.

After 5k...you arrive in a sort of crossing with another road and you must take the small road which keep going up... and here starts the fun: The gradient gets very steep, around 15-17% for at least 2km.. then there is a small section which eases at 10%, to leave another very steep section with points up to 20% for the last 2k.

At the top you reach the border with the Czech Republic and there is an hotel.

The road on the polish side is extremely narrow and with potholes, while on the Czech side it is large and very pleasant road (which makes it also a very nice climb).

I was using a 39x26 but it is totally overgeared.

Nice view at the top even if it can be very misty some days

Story by Miras from Zielona Góra, Poland, submitted on 15/02/2011
Napis na asfalcie 4400 bardzo dołuje. Jeżeli ktoś ma zamiar tam jechać, to niech wytrzyma pierwszy kilometr. Od napisu 3000 do 2000 jest lżej - "wypłaszcza się do ok.10% - 12%". Normalnie jest to masakryczne, ale po pierwszym przejechanym odcinku, gdzie stromizna dochodzi do ponad 20% to właśnie ten kilometr daje chwilę wytchnienia, gdzie można zrzucić łańcuch na mniejszą koronkę z tyłu, stanąć w korby i trochę dokręcić. W połowie drogi mamy więc najtrudniejszy kilometr szosy w Polsce - 15.7 %. Drugi podobnie trudny - 14.1% - jest na tej samej drodze, tuż przed przełęczą. Jeżeli dotrwa się do napisu 2000 to trzeba z głowy wyrzucić wszystkie złe myśli. Po minięciu napisu 1000 już się myśli się tylko o tym aby zejść z roweru. Wieczność trwa zanim zapoconym oczom ukaże się napis 500. Dotarcie do następnych napisów trwa jeszcze dłużej a pokazują się z większą częstotliwością co 100 metrów. Wreszcie pokazuje się dach schroniska Spindlerova Bouda. Jeszcze chwila, można stanąć w korby i wreszcie postawić stopy na ziemi koło schroniska PTTK "Odrodzenie" (1250 npm).
