The final two kilometers of this short climb
are particularly steep with 500 meter intervals
of 15, 14, 12 and 15 percent.
Short sections are even steeper than 15 percent.
The last stretch of the trip was so utterly steep that
I had to stand on the pedals
in order to avoid falling.
So far (January 2017)
this trip also harbours the by far steepest kilometer
of the Black Forest of this website (14.6%).
From the starting point in Ottenhöfen
one first heads towards Allerheiligen.
After one and a half kilometers one turns to the right
in Unterwasser into a street named Wolfersbach.
From here the route runs uphill along a badly asphalted
road with almost no traffic
through a beautiful valley with farms and meadows.
The first kilometer is still only moderately steep (6-8%).
Then the two infernal last kilometers appear.
There are no signs to Sohlberg on the way.
Always choose the logical continuation
and take the road to the left
at a bifurcation one kilometer before the end,
where the choice is really difficult.
