Had a short stay in Freiburg on business and saw this climb started right from the city so was tempted to take the Airnimal and ride this after work in mid October. It''s a nice climb, quite sustained after turn to Horben but then easing up towards the top. The road surface was good. Would like to do it again in the daylight and the dry as the descent would be very fast in good conditions. The high level ride to the Notschrei pass was great at nigh with lights far below on either side
My personal climb rating:

I did the climb together with a friend of mine on 10 August 2012 in perfect weather conditions. It is only one of several roads to the top and this one is the easiest one in my opinion. The road to the top is in excellent condition but bikers are also attracted so beware. I certainly recommend this climb to kick off your Black Forest experience and you may use it to get your body into gear for tougher climbs to come.
