First half of the ride fairly non descript. It’s the last 10km that makes this climb worthwhile. It doesn’t really dip below 11% for the final 10km. Second half of the climb I saw zero traffic. Views are amazing from the top where you finish at a small cluster of houses. Tarmac/asphalt all the way (August 2021).
