Climb Summary

Skalka Slovakia Climb Summary

PJAMM cycled Skalka June 7, 2018.  Brad’s report:

“The climb starts on the cobble streets of the the slightly distressed Slovakian town of Kremnica. School had just been dismissed for the day and we rode past many cheerful children on our way to the start of the climb to the Skalka Ski Resort. From there the climb enters a very lush forested area with few structures aside from an occasional residence and two cafes along the way. Surrounded by trees most of the climb, we have no scenic views. The gradient is fairly constant and there are no switchbacks. Just before the summit you will pass a ski resort. The final ramp to the summit brings you to a radio tower, although you are not allowed to ride all the way up to it, as we were told.”
