The ascent of Monte Oiz would not be such a problem if they had not added the last two kilometres. The climb starts with 8 kilometres on a good wide track. Then the road climbs further on a bumpy service road of sometimes concrete and sometimes asphalt. The road is not super bad but in the descent you do suffer from all the rattling. At the last bend, the crying starts: two more kilometres to the transmission towers. Large parts of the descent are above 15 mph, then drop to 8 mph and return to double digits. There are also races passing by, judging by the paintings of names on the road...
I don't think this is the most beautiful climb, but it's certainly not ugly. If it is a sunny day, you have a good view on all sides. On my day, it was a bit hazy so you could not see very far.
You have the climb mostly to yourself and some stray horses. I did not see a car or other cyclists...

De beklimming van de Monte Oiz zou niet zo'n probleem zijn als ze die laatste twee kilometer er niet aan hadden geplakt. De klim begint met 8 kilometer over een prima brede baan. Daarna klimt de weg verder op een hobbeldebobbel dienstweg van soms beton en soms asfalt. De weg is niet superslecht maar in de afdaling heb je wel last van al het gerammel. Bij de laatste bocht begint het huilen: nog twee kilometer naar de zendmasten die zich dik in de dubbele cijfers afspelen. Grote stukken is het ploegen boven de 15% om dan heel even te zakken naar 8% en dan weer de dubbele cijfers in te schieten. Er komen gezien de schilderingen van namen op de weg ook koersen langs...
Ik vind dit niet de mooiste klim, maar hij is zeker niet lelijk. Als het een zonnige dag is heb je een prima uitzicht aan alle kanten. Op mijn dag was het wat heiig waardoor je niet zo ver kon kijken.
De klim heb je veelal voor jezelf en voor wat loslopende paarden. Ik heb geen auto of andere fietsers gezien...
