The road to reach the summit is extremely narrow, with terrible asphalt, potholes, and extremely steep. The ramps really hit hard, getting up to 15% at the end of three, ascending in difficulty, 3km from home, a flattening out for no more than 100m is then followed by a spike up to 13%. The last 1,5km is also the toughest, averaging no less than 12%, and with a maximum of just 17%, that tells you that it's incessant suffering. It's actually kind of strange that the maximum of such a brutal climb is just 17%. On top of the summit, there are some antennas and communications towers.
