Been there summer 2019. Very nice climb. Just a light for the short tunnel is not a luxury! The photos attached were taken at the end of the climb. It ends at a farm with stray cows and here and there some mud on the road. The rest of the road is super good asphalt!... read more

Zomer 2019 geweest. Zeer mooie beklimming. Even een lampje voor de korte tunnel is geen overbodige luxe! De foto's die zijn bijgevoegd zijn gemaakt op het einde van de klim. Deze loopt dood bij een boerderij met loslopende koeien en hier en daar wat modder op de weg. De rest van de weg is super goed asfalt!
