The first 200 metres of the climb are not paved and I would skip. From the lighthouse, the paved road starts and you first climb briskly up past houses and kitchen gardens. After turning onto the main road (still little traffic), the climb becomes more irregular. After the villages, the road climbs more steadily for a long time.

The views were not spectacular, but for much of the second half of the climb there was fog and it is possible that this is very nice in nice weather.

De eerste 200 meter van de klim zijn niet verhard en zou ik overslaan. Vanaf de vuurtoren begint de verharde weg en klim je eerst lang huizen en moestuinen stevig omhoog. Na het opdraaien van de doorgaande weg (nog steeds weinig verkeer) wordt de klim onregelmatiger. Na de dorpjes klimt de weg nog lang en meer gestaag door.

De uitzichten waren niet spectaculair, maar een groot deel van de tweede helft van de klim was er mist en mogelijk dat dit bij mooi weer wel erg mooi is.
