This climb is way harder than PJAMM rates it. Last year, I climbed up Rionda and I feel like this is harder due to the extreme steepness. The profile tool makes the first part look like consistent 20% when it actually factors in the small respites when most people go towards the outsides of the switchbacks and there are 30%+ pitches for 100 meters multiple times. This might be a very enjoyable climb for people with a high W/kG FTP (4+ maybe) or if you are used to these steep climbs. In my case, I had no experience with steep climbs like this in a while, so it was tough for me. Also a gravel bike and a low gear ratio helps. I had both but was still grinding with a 42/52. There is no traffic but it is still very hard to paper boy because of the small one-lane road. It is not over when you finish that one-lane part as there is another 30% pitch, but then there is a respite and you are rewarded with a gravel 6km stretch that is pretty much sustained 10%. Amazing scenery at the end.
