Starting from Olomouc, its 65 km to the start so a decent warm up! The climb itself is not too severe. Its a steady, constant gradient with little variation but steep enough to let you know its a serious climb! With a compact crankset, I found myself mostly in 34/28 and it was fine. Wow, the views are stunning! There is a restaurant on top in the TV tower. The road surface is pretty good, but not quite perfect. A few bumps and shallow ruts here and there noticable on the descent so pay attention. The road is also popular with walkers and a sign at the summit advises against speedy descents but, well you csn, especially when you are down it a ways..
