Great climb with nice photo opportunities esp for the hairpins, gets relatively hot and change of gradients keeps you away from steady grinding... read more

Lovely climb. Close to the hustle and bustle of coast, but delightfully quiet in the mountains. This climb has some tricky kilometres, interspersed with some better running sections. Highlight is the passage with the hairpin bends. The kilometre signs are also very handy and help to classify the climb properly

Heerlijke klim. Dichtbij de drukte van kust, maar in de bergen is het heerlijk rustig. Deze klim heeft enkele lastige kilometers, afgewisseld met wat beter lopende stukken. Hoogtepunt is de passage met de haarspeldbochten. De kilometer bordjes zijn ook erg handig en helpen om de klim goed in te delen

Difficult climb. Much more irregular than the schedule suggests. However, it is a wonderfully quiet road and you are treated to a beautiful viewpoint over the hairpin bends.

Lastige klim. Veel onregelmatiger dan het schema doet vermoeden. Wel een heerlijk rustige weg en je wordt getrakteerd met een mooi uitzichtpunt over de haarspeldbochten.
