I started this climb on the flat section, where you come up after the descent from Winterlicken. This is because I had done both the Sustenpass and the climb to Winterlicken before.

It is really a beautiful narrow valley with a babbling river on your right and sometimes some waterfalls. Cows with bells everywhere. And almost no traffic.

The end is really steep as I said. At one point, I apparently went slowly enough to get some flies from the cows on and around me as well...

When you get to the car park, it's either left around the bend to the hotel or right for another short section of coarse gravel to get to the lake. That is of course a must do!

Ik ben deze klim begonnen op het vlakke gedeelte, waar je opkomt na de afdaling van Winterlicken. Dit omdat ik zowel de Sustenpas als de klim naar Winterlicken eerder al een keer gedaan had.

Het is echt een prachtig smal dal met een kabbelende rivier aan je rechterhand en soms wat watervallen. Ook overal koeien met bellen. En bijna geen verkeer.

Het slot is echt steil zoals gezegd. Op een gegeven moment ging ik blijkbaar langzaam genoeg om ook wat vliegen van de koeien op en rond me te krijgen...

Als je bij de parkeerplaats komt is het of links de bocht naar het hotel of rechts aanhouden voor nog een kort deel met grof grind om bij het meer te komen. Dat is natuurlijk een must do!

Wonderful climb that I unfortunately cycled in misty and cloudy weather at the beginning of July 2022. Despite the drizzly conditions, I enjoyed the very beautiful surroundings. A narrow road that runs through a fairytale-like and deserted valley. The percentages do not lie. However, the surroundings make the pain in the legs disappear like snow in the sun. A gem!

Prachtige klim die ik helaas in mistig en bewolkt weer begin juli 2022 heb gefietst. Ondanks de miezerige omstandigheden toch genoten van de zeer fraaie omgeving. Een smal weggetje dat door een sprookjesachtig en verlaten dal loopt. De percentages liegen er niet om. De omgeving doet echter de pijn in de benen verdwijnen als sneeuw voor de zon. Pareltje!

Nice climb, which starts at the foot of the Sustenpass. After a few kilometers a somewhat narrower road to the left where you cycle a few km in the woods. If you come out of it, you cycle between two large rocks. There it is 4km almost flat, with a fantastic environment of rocks, meadows and a good road surface. After that you can ride hard for over 6km to the top!

Mooie klim, die start aan de voet van de Sustenpass. Na een paar kilometer een wat smaller weg in links waar je een paar km in de bossen fietst. Als je daaruit komt, fiets je tussen twee grote rotspartijen in. Daar is het 4km nagenoeg vlak, met een fantastische omgeving van rotsen, weilanden met een goed wegdek. Daarna kun je nog even ruim 6km flink aan de bak tot de top!
