They were soon long gone and the silent forest was my only companion. This route seems less populated and more peaceful. It was a good challenge but I can't remember how difficult the Calci side was to make a comparison. At the antenna farm the road ends and I headed down. I was luckier and didn't get lost on the ride home this time. If you're ever in the area definitely try this climb.
