Wonderful climb, this is the best side, although the other side is nice too. The first part is the steepest. 8km of constant climbing at about 10%, nice tarmac and it's a treat if you like steep climbs. After those 8km, the landscape changes to something completely different, you are above the tree line, you continue a bit further past the Gaustatoppen cable car. Be careful not to turn off to go to the cable car, the highest point with the bike is just further straight ahead. I rode on to Sauland, only to climb the other side as well. As in all mountains, the weather can change, sufficiently warm down below, at the top it was cold, especially when I had to change my inner tube. The cold wind cooled me down immediately.... I did the climb on Saturday, September 30. At that time, there were a lot of people as it was school holidays. During the week, however, there were not many people, we stayed in Rjukan and we went up a few times. The tarmac was mainly good, as we are used to in Norway, except for a few places where it was a bit less.

Prachtige klim, dit is de mooiste kant, alhoewel de andere kant ook leuk is. Het eerste gedeelte is het steilste. 8km constant klimmen aan ongeveer 10%, mooi asfalt en het is feest als je van steile beklimmingen houd. Na die 8 km veranderd het landschap in wat totaal anders, je bent boven de boomgrens, je gaat nog wat verder langs de Gaustatoppen kabelbaan. Pas op, niet afslaan om naar de kabelbaan te gaan, het hoogste punt met de fiets ligt gewoon verder rechtdoor. Ik heb doorgereden tot in Sauland, om dan de andere kant ook te beklimmen. Zoals in alle bergen kan het weer omslaan, voldoende warm beneden, boven was het koud, zeker toen ik mijn binnenband moest vervangen. De koude wind koelde me onmiddellijk af... Ik deed de klim op zaterdag 30 september. Op dat moment was er veel volk aangezien het schoolvakantie was. In de week was er echter niet veel volk, we verbleven in Rjukan en we zijn enkele keren naar boven gegaan. Het asfalt is hoofdzakelijk goed, zoals we in Noorwegen gewend zijn, om enkele plaatsen na, waar het wat minder was.
