Climbed it during my vacation in the Black Forest. My first ride there and immediately did the toughest climb in the region.... That was quite a misconception. The first few kilometers are not too bad, but then there is a long middle section where it doesn't go below 8%, with parts above 10... read more

A tough and irregular climb. Long stretches of 10-11% are alternated by short flatter ones. The fact that the climb continues through the forest, so there are no views, makes it extra tough. In this respect, it is similar to e.g. the Platzerwasel in the Vosges.
Asphalt in the first half of the climb is excellent. Towards the top, the tarmac is worse with many holes in the road. Many bikers in the weekend.

Pittige, onregelmatige klim. Lange stukken van 10-11% worden afgewisseld door korte vlakkere stukken. Dat de klim continu door het bos gaat, waardoor er geen uitzichten zijn, maakt het extra zwaar. Wat dat betreft vergelijkbaar met bijv. de Platzerwasel in de Vogezen.
Asfalt in de eerste helft van de klim is uitstekend. Richting de top wordt het asfalt slechter met veel gaten in de weg. Veel motorrijders in het weekend.

Climbed it during my vacation in the Black Forest. My first ride there and immediately did the toughest climb in the region.... That was quite a misconception. The first few kilometers are not too bad, but then there is a long middle section where it doesn't go below 8%, with parts above 10%. I really destroyed myself here, especially because it never flattens out.
It is a completely forested climb with the advantage that on hot days it is a good alternative for the more "open" climbs in the area. Disadvantage is that only at the top you are treated to a truly phenomenal view. During the climb you see nothing but trees, which in my opinion gives it a certain mystique.
All in all, I found this a really tough climb, maybe because my legs weren't used to climbing yet, but I don't think I'm saying too much if this is a big ordeal for every cyclist from the polder.

Beklommen tijdens mijn vakantie in het Zwarte Woud. Mijn eerste rit daar en direct de zwaarste klim in de regio gedaan... Dat was een behoorlijke misvatting. De eerste paar kilometers zijn nog prima te doen, maar dan volgt een lang middendeel waar het niet meer onder de 8% gaat, met hele stukken boven de 10%. Ik reed mezelf hier aardig de vernieling in, vooral doordat het nergens afvlakte.
Het is een klim die volledig in het bos ligt met als voordeel dat het op warme dagen een goed alternatief is voor de meer "open" beklimmingen in de omgeving. Nadeel is dat je pas op de top wordt getrakteerd op een werkelijk fenomenaal uitzicht. Tijdens de klim zie je niets anders dan bomen, wat het in mijn ogen ook wel een bepaalde mystiek geeft.
Al met al vond ik dit echt wel een heel zware klim, misschien dus omdat mijn benen het klimmen nog niet gewend waren, maar ik denk dat ik niks te veel zeg als dit voor iedere fietser uit de polder een flinke beproeving is.
