It's easy to miss the start, look for the cemetery on the lake side of the road and the start is opposite. Very steep and demanding from the first meters. A poor road surface with lots of gravel on the outside of the hairpins which is the only way up - the hairpin interiors are nothing better than 'walls' - so pick your route carefully.
Even though it is only 5 kms long if you're in the area it's well worth riding for pride and the bragging rights that go with it. No gear changing necessary - just start all to the left.
The descent is as demanding as the climb and nerve-racking/dangerous with Madame Gravity working against you again on poor twisting road surfaces - check your brakes!
