Did this climb yesterday. Tough one.
30plus degrees Celsius and last 2k wind in your face.

Very good chocolate cake in the restaurant :-)

Did this the other day, on a carbon frame road bike not too hard although, it was blowing a gale force 10 at the top, got pine cones, branches etc. blown onto my face as I went up. The lower section is a bit steep. but a very enjoyable ride.
