This is actually a 7 km climb, good road. After 7km the road changes to gravel, perfect for a MTB/ATB.
I had a Garmin EDGE 705 on my bike.
It took me 3 times to reach the 5km. point.
When i reached the 5 km. point, i had climbed 33 minutes (!), an average of 9.4 km/h.
The first 3 km go up to 16-18%. After that you can recover (700 mtrs), before you start a dazzling climb of 25%!!! followed by another climb of 20%, 18%, 23%.
It looks like the Redoute (belgium), but 4/5 times as long.
