About 5.5 km with averages that stay around 8% the entire climb, with some parts that shoot upwards. Not the longest of climbs, but the percentages are steep, with possibly a bit of a climb to the base beforehand, it's not an easy one.

About 5.5 km with averages that stay around 8% the entire climb, with some parts that shoot upwards. Not the longest of climbs, but the percentages are steep, with possibly a bit of a climb to the base beforehand, it's not an easy one. Especially the average 11% piece of 2-3km from the top is tough, where it feels like it never flattens out and your legs are not given any rest.

Soon after the start you enter a pine forest and you stay there for the rest of the climb until you reach the top. This makes cycling in the shade a lot easier and you don't have to worry about the heat. The road surface is excellent throughout the climb with nice smooth tarmac. Since the viewpoint is also a fairly busy tourist point, it can be quite crowded with cars depending on what time you do the climb. In most bends it is difficult to estimate whether there is a car coming, so be especially alert to this when descending. Once at the top you have a beautiful view over the crater of the volcano.

Zo'n 5,5 km met gemiddeldes die eigenlijk de gehele klim zo rond de 8% blijven, met hier en daar stukken die naar boven uitschieten. Niet de meest lange klim, maar de percentages zijn pittig, met eventueel daarvoor al een stuk klimmen naar de voet te hebben gedaan is het geen makkie. Vooral het stuk van gemiddeld 11% van 2-3km van de top is zwaar, waar het voor je gevoel geen moment afvlakt en je benen geen rust worden gegund.

Al vrij snel na het begin rijd je een dennenbos in en daar blijf je de rest van de klim in tot je bij de top bent. Daardoor fiets je lekker in de schaduw en heb je minder last van de eventuele warmte. Het wegdek is de gehele klim uitstekend met mooi glad asfalt. Aangezien het uitzichtpunt ook een vrij druk toeristisch punt is, kan het afhankelijk van hoe laat je de klim doet redelijk druk zijn met auto's. In de meeste bochten is het lastig om in te schatten of er een auto aankomt, dus wees hier vooral alert op bij het afdalen. Eenmaal boven heb je een werkelijk een prachtig uitzicht over de grote krater van de vulkaan.
