This ascent begins with the first part of the hardest climb in the Black Forest, Hornisgrinde-west. The ride begins in Achern and is easy until Saasbachwalden (maximum 6%), where the first difficult section of the Hornisgrinde-west (one kilometer of 10%) starts. This kilometer is also part of this climb but at the Straubenhof, where the route to the Hornisgrinde turns to the left, we turn to the right towards Seebach. From here to the anonymous pass, which is our destination, the climb over a narrow, quiet and winding road is a pleasure. The first kilometer is still steep (about 10%) but then cycling becomes easier (about 6%). The surroundings consist of farms, orchards and pastures. The final section, a little less than a kilometer long, runs through the forest.
