Well not really storming but more grovelling with a time of around 16 minutes to the top. It is a very very steep climb for the first 1km. I caught up with a runner but was unable to pass him on the >15% sections, finally managing to break away when the road flattened (he may have blown up). I rode round to the viewpoint to admire the snowy alps and my bike and in the end decided to ride home without tackling any other climbs.
Dry, warm. Road has been completely resurfaced, get in!
